Silverado Vineyards Block Blend Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

$35.00

Silverado Vineyards is perfectly situated on the northwestern hills of the beloved Stag’s Leap District. Just like the world famous SLD, Silverado Vineyards has made an international name for themselves over the last four decades.

Ron Miller and his wife Diane Disney along with her mother Lillian Disney (yes, that one) established Silverado in 1981 and as you can imagine, they spared no expense in buying vineyards up and down the Silverado Trail and across Napa’s top AVAs, with six total vineyards in their portfolio.

With the perfect vineyard layout at their disposal, it’s not surprising this winery has become the juggernaut it has today. There’s that and there’s also the people.

Winemaker Jon Emmerich has been there over 30 years – an uber rare occurrence in this day and age – and has been there every step of the way as to see the place blossom into what it has become. After all these years, he knows every single block like the back of his hand, which is how the ‘Block Blend’ Cabernet Sauvignon came to be. It’s sorta a “dealer’s choice” if you will of Silverado’s Cabernets with the winemaker and his team crafting a blend from the very best vineyard blocks from Silverado’s estate Cabernet vineyards.

In 2018, Emmerich and company cooked up a particularly special blend. The Cab incorporated blocks M to T in Mt. George Vineyard (first planted in Napa in the 19th century) along with Silverado Vineyard Blocks A to T (home vineyard to the namesake winery) and lastly Block S from the legendary Oakville Station Vineyard (first planted in 1883).

Ripe blackcurrants, cocoa powder, toasted walnuts and dried flowers on the nose. It’s medium-bodied with firm, ultra fine tannins. Structured and fresh. Lovely balance of fruit and chocolate. Try from 2022.
