Winemaker Notes

Dark red color. Aromas of tobacco, dried herbs, brandied fruit compote and savory spices. Medium to full bodied, a soft and broad mid-palate with integrated flavors of ripe red fruits and sweet oak. Silky, mouth coating finish.

Blend: 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc, 4% Petit Verdot

Silverado Vineyards has made excellent Cabernet Sauvignon since 1981, but only 12 vintages have merited the rare Limited label. Limited Cabernet Sauvignon is produced only in optimal years, when small lots of wine are blended to express the essence of classic, age worthy Napa Valley Cabernet. 2005 was that kind of year.

Vineyard Sources:
Mt. George Vineyard (62%)
Located east of Napa, Mt. George Vineyard is the site of one of the first grape plantings in the valley in the 19th century. The deep, gravelly soils are derived from volcanic rock and ash, providing depth and structure to Silverado's wines.
Stags Leap Vineyard (38%)
This sloping, gravelly soils and sunny exposure of this vineyard helped establish the reputation of Stags Leap District for fine Cabernet.

Critical Acclaim

RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Broodingly backward, but enormously promising is the 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Limited Reserve, a blend of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest equal parts Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot. Dense purple to the rim, with restrained, but promising aromas of lavender, roasted herbs, blueberries, and black currants, this wine hits the palate with sensational concentration, and elevated, but sweet, well-integrated tannins. It is a full-bodied, dense, exceptionally pure, harmonious Cabernet with long-term potential. Forget it for 3-5 years, and drink it over the following 25-30 years. Rated 94+.

Wine Enthusiast
Impresses for its depth, power and balance, a wine whose classic acid-tannin structure could only have come from a pedigreed terroir. There’s an enormous concentration of black currants and minerals, but the wine is immature in astringent tannins. Needs time, and possibly lots of it. Best 2011 and beyond.

One of the most prestigious wines of the world capable of great power and grace, Napa Valley Cabernet is a leading force in the world of fine, famous, collectible red wines. Today the Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without the other. But it wasn’t until the 1970s that this marriage came to light; sudden international recognition rained upon Napa with the victory of the Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars 1973 Cabernet Sauvignon in the 1976 Judgement of Paris.

Cabernet Sauvignon undoubtedly dominates Napa Valley today, covering half of the land under vine, commanding the highest prices per ton and earning the most critical acclaim. Cabernet Sauvignon’s structure, acidity, capacity to thrive in multiple environs and ability to express nuances of vintage make it perfect for Napa Valley where incredible soil and geographical diversity are found and the climate is perfect for grape growing. Within the Napa Valley lie many smaller sub-AVAs that express specific characteristics based on situation, slope and soil—as a perfect example, Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
