"I am impressed with the structure of this wine."
"I am impressed with the structure of this wine. This shows intense aromas of crushed blackberries and blueberries that follow to a full body, with lots of fruit and a velvety tannin structure. Long and structured."

"The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon is a gorgeous example of elegance allied to power."
"The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon is a gorgeous example of elegance allied to power. The final blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot, Petit Verdot, and Cabernet Franc offers up notes of crushed rock, spring flowers, red and black currants, and plum as well as hints of while chocolate and subtle barrique smells. Medium to full-bodied, with a nicely layered mouthfeel that builds incrementally, the wine has superb purity as well as accessibility. It can be drunk now or cellared for 15 or more years. This is a strong group of wines from Silverado, and certainly a great deal of credit must go to the winemaker Jonathan Emmerich."

The Wine Advocate - 89 points
"...Dark ruby/purple, with notes of chocolate, cassis, espresso roast, and some underbrush, the wine is attractive, rich, medium-bodied, and while tannic, not excessively so, as some 2006s have tended to be. This wine should drink well for 10-15 years."

"Old style Napa California Cab."
"Old style Napa California Cab. Enjoy it. Dried flowers and currants on the nose. Full body, with velvety and chewy tannins. Structured and rich. Needs time. Leave it for three to four years."
