In 1981 Ron and Diane Miller established Silverado Vineyards to make wines from the six sites at the cooler southern end of the Napa Valley that comprise their estate. These historic vineyards, from which all of Silverado’s wines are made, were originally planted by Napa pioneers between 1865 and 1895. Each site is now planted with the most suitable varieties and clones – in fact the Stags Leap property is the source of one of only three of California’s ‘heritage’ clones of Cabernet. Stylistically, the wines lean towards elegance and fragrance rather than power and weight. As winemaker Jonathan Emmerich says, “Wine has to be delicious. It is meant to be a pleasure.”

Vineyard

The grapes for this wine come from the Miller Ranch vineyards in Napa, planted on a mix of Cole Silt Loam, Yolo Loam and Clear Lake Clay. The vines, aged between seven and twenty-five years, are cane pruned and undergo green harvesting. Harvest took place between the 29th of August and the 9th of September.

Winery

After pressing, the juice undergoes a long ferment of between eight and nine weeks in small stainless steel tanks at very low temperatures, using a cultivated yeast strain designed to work in cold conditions. After the fermentation the wine was left to age on its lees for seven months, with weekly battonage.
