    On these cool winter nights there is nothing better than a big Napa Cabernet! Silverado reveals itself with plush notes of black fruit, dried herbs and espresso tasting notes. This is not about overblown fruit. It is big, but balanced with the fruit, oak and tannins, all well integrated. Silky smooth and velvety in texture, the classic Staggs Leap District Cab pervades. The balanced acidity makes for a long finish, with flavors that continue to warm the insides of the heart. Light a fire, open the bottle of Silverado and enjoy the magic that only a Napa Cabernet can bring.

    What a gem! Surprisingly green on the nose, with pepper notes and subtle mocha through the palate, Silverado is a well-balanced Cabernet Sauvignon that somehow showcases classic Napa style while feeling reminiscent of Bordeaux. In fact, we sneaked it into a lineup of Left Bank new arrivals and it held its own! This is still California though: dark berry fruit shines through, with a welcome structure to the finish. Grip, elegance, and all estate fruit for barely 40 bucks – the 2013 Silverado will impress Napa fans and beyond.

    Silverado is an old school, traditional producer and that is exactly what you get from this Cab. Classics aromatics on the nose with subtle green and spice notes, coupled with black raspberry black cherry and plum. The palate is silky and supple with some nice grippy but needed tannins. Top this under $40 Cab with a persistent finish of integrated oak and balanced fruit and you have a time honored Napa Cab style for an amazing value!

    A classic Napa Cabernet in a style and price point that has become all too rare these days! It's built on deep, earthy, powerful fruit, loamy notes, cedar and cigar box. The palate is rich and full but not confected or over extracted. The oak gives a framework and exotic spice but doesn't over power the varietal nuances. There's a freshness to the fruit and a line and length that is really well done. Real pedigree on display here. In the realms of modern Napa Cab this is a very impressive and complete wine for such a modest price point.

    Glad to see another well made and super interesting Napa Cab come in at under $40! Toasted mocha, burnt caramel, and chewy tannins give this wine tons of complex, interesting, and satisfying flavor and mouth feel. The acidity is balanced, making this a perfect dinner pairing for a protein, especially one covered in a sweeter sauce, whether it be BBQ or fruit-based.

    The 2013’s sure do impress! One of the later releases, the Silverado Estate Cabernet, is a great example of a California Cabernet that is not overdone. The fruit is full and ripe but is balanced with the rest of the wine. This is a big, sturdy Cab that shows lots of complexity but still manages to show some finesse. This should please most if not all California Cab drinkers.
