Winemaker Notes

Floral and sweet fruit aromas, hints of clove and bittersweet chocolate. Full bodied, with good tannin structure and flavors of muddled black cherry, anise and stone fruit.

Tasting Panel
This single vineyard Cab comes from Mount George Vineyard at the base of Mount George volcano. Aromas of blackberry pie, mocha café and slate are expressive and sumptuous. Chocolate blueberry enters first, lifted by big-shouldered, yet elegant tannins. Spiced on the middle, with clove, leather and anise. Plush and generous.
JS 95
James Suckling
There’s a concentrated and focused feel to this elegant and fragrant cab with aromas of violets and blackcurrants, leading to a smooth and even-paced palate with succulent, long and rich, fruit-soaked tannins. Try from 2020.

COMMENTARY: The 2016 Silverado Vineyards GEO Cabernet Sauvignon shows excellent density and a lasting finish. TASTING NOTES: This wine is built and layered with aromas and flavors of bold black fruit and attractive oaky notes in the background. Enjoy it with a grilled, juicy ribeye. (Tasted: February 21, 2020, St. Helena, CA)
WE 92
Wine Enthusiast
From the producer's own Mount George Vineyard this 100% varietal wine is sumptuous in blackberry, cherry and a forthright nose of clove. Dark and brooding, it offers depth and rounded texture, a richness on the midpalate that leads to earthy notes of dried herb, cedar and crushed rock.
WS 92
Wine Spectator
Very expressive up front, with violet, blueberry and steeped plum aromas and flavors mixed together, laced with warm earth and sweet tobacco nuances. Everything gains steam steadily through the finish. Shows a slightly rustic edge at the end, but this remains rock-solid. Best from 2022 through 2035.
RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Geo gives fragrant notes of lavender and lilacs with a core of plum preserves and warm cassis plus hints of spearmint, tree bark and dark chocolate. Full-bodied with firm, ripe, grainy tannins, it is packed with vivacious fruit, finishing long and earthy.

Silverado Vineyards Winery Video

Nestled in the hills on the North West side of the Stags Leap District, Silverado Vineyards Winery has been a favorite wine country destination and home to some of the Napa Valley’s most-recognized wines for almost forty years. In 1981, Ron and Diane Disney Miller and her mother, Lillian Disney, established Silverado Vineyards to make wines from the historic sites of the estate the family owns. The winery was named in honor of the Silverado Vineyard, one of the first four in Stags Leap District to plant Cabernet in the 1960s. The vineyard pays homage to the abandoned mining town at the top of the Valley which also inspired the name of the famous Silverado Trail where Silverado Vineyards and other iconic wineries of the Stags Leap District are situated. Silverado Vineyards owns five other storied vineyards across Napa Valley’s top AVAs: Miller Ranch, Mt. George, Soda Creek Ranch (Borreo), Firetree, and Vineburg. All of Silverado’s wines are estate-grown, produced and bottled. Winemaker Jon Emmerich is only the second lead winemaker in the history of Silverado Vineyards and celebrated his 30th vintage with the winery in 2020. Jon has grown Silverado’s reputation for quality and consistency along with his colleague Elena Franceschi, who has been Silverado’s associate winemaker for nearly 25 years. When Diane Miller passed away in 2013, Ron Miller became president of the Board of Directors of The Walt Disney Family Museum, and chairman of Silverado Vineyards until his passing in 2019. Diane and Ron’s children and grandchildren proudly continue to carry their family’s legacy forward as the owners of Silverado Vineyards.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbecand Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
