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. The volcanic shale and tufa produce Petit Verdot with aromas of purple fruit and flowers, firm acidity and a slight, chewy tannin..
