Winemaker's Notes:

Blend: 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot, 2% Cabernet Franc

Ripe juicy plum fruit aromas. Medium to full body with a broad palate. Lively acidity leads to a fruity and persistent finish.

About Silverado Vineyards:

In the heart of Napa Valley's Stags Leap District sits a rocky peak with a spectacular Mediterranean-style stone winery perched on top. That winery is the iconic Silverado Vineyards, established in 1981 by Ron and Diane Disney Miller. Thirty years later, three generations of Miller Family continue to source grapes entirely from their family-owned estate Napa vineyards. From berry to bottle, each vine growing and wine making step is dedicated to expressing the character of grapes grown on each of the wineries six historic vineyards. Expressing richness and age-worthiness, Silverado wines are unique, one-of-a-kind blends of superlative vineyard location and elegant winemaking style.

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2005 CASK Cabernet has layers of ripe, red cherries, plum, vanilla, cocoa, and toast. The wine is remarkable now, especially if served with intensely flavored meats or cheeses, but it also can be aged for 10 years or more. This is a monumental vintage for CASK.

Additional wines from Inglenook:

About Inglenook:

In 1879, Finnish explorer and adventurer Gustave Niebaum searched the Napa Valley with the goal of establishing a wine estate to rival the finest chateau of France. For decades his wines won acclaim and remain some of the most admired in American wine history's classic period. By the mid-1960's, his property was divided, and estate-wine production ceased.

A decade later, Francis Ford Coppola purchased 1,500 acres of this historic property and revived Captain Niebaum's fine winemaking tradition. In 1995, Niebaum-Coppola acquired the remainder of the property and restored the Inglenook Estate to its original dimensions.
