- 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon UK - 91 Pts
"...a satisfying wine..."
"Rich blackcurrant and blackberry fruit with some spicy, grippy tannins. Grippy with good balance between the ripe fruit and tarry, tannic structure. It carries the alcohol really well: a satisfying wine. 91/100"

- 2006 Estate Merlot - 92 Points
"Silverado has done Merlot well, ..."
"...Merlot from the Napa Valley is different from most other Merlot's produced in California, the good ones anyway. What they have that others lack is structure. A good Napa Valley Merlot is a complete wine, with upfront sweet fruit on the entry, weight on the mid-palate and juicy fruit through the finish. Silverado has always done Merlot well, and this '06 is no exception. Aromas of plum, blueberry and blackberry are fresh and vibrant, the fruit is concentrated and layered, and the tannins are long and smooth, with a judicious amount of spicy oak in the background. Absolutely delicious. 92 Points"
