In 1981, Ron and Dian Miller established Silverado Vineyards to make wine from the historic vineyards of their estate. Napa pioneers first planted these ranches to vines between 18965 and 1895. Each vineyard played an important role in establishing the reputation of its appellation: Carneros, Coomsville, Yountville and Stags Leap District. The beautiful fruit from these vineyards is the exclusive source of Silverado Vineyards' Estate and Single Vineyard wines - the Miller family's highest expression of the Napa Valley they love and admire. Generations of the Miller family hope you enjoy our Cabernet Sauvignon for many more years to come.

Vintage notes
From abundant winter rains to cool spring weather, warm summer temperatures and October’s wildfires, 2017 is a memorable vintage.
Plentiful winter rains helped refresh our vines and led to a cool, mild spring. Due in part to these warmer temperatures, 90% of Napa Valley’s grape tonnage was harvested before the wine country wildfires began. Based on Silverado’s house wine style, we typically pick early and were fortunate to have 100% of our fruit harvested with no smoke impact.

Tasting notes
Aromas of Linzer cookies and savory herbs. A fresh, clean palate with flavors of dark cherry cola, black raspberry, and hints of sweet tobacco. Full-bodied and smooth with a lingering berry finish.
