Production 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.

Vineyard Notes

100% Mt. George Vineyard. In 1877, German immigrant Henry Hagen purchased a Napa vineyard site and named it Cedar Knoll. This was the first vineyard to be planted in the area which would later be known as the Coombsville AVA. Each year we select distinctive blocks of an extraordinary field selection from this same vineyard and create a special single-vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon in Henry’s honor.
