"The Silverado Miller Ranch Sauvignon Blanc, Napa Valley, is always one of my favorite sauvignon blanc wines, and for 2012 that's right, the wine isn't even six months old it shows itself in fine fashion. The color is a very pale straw hue; snappy yet stylish aromas of grapefruit, lime peel and limestone, fig and tarragon, thyme, sage and bay tantalize the nose; a few minutes in the glass bring in notes of fresh-mown grass and gooseberry. The whole enterprise is lively and vibrant, energized by crisp, finely-etched acidity and scintillating, crystalline elements of flint and steel...After a few more moments, the Silverado Miller Ranch Sauvignon Blanc 2012 unfolds hints of tangerine and jasmine, pear and caramelized fennel, all of these qualities expressed with delicacy and finesse."

Frederic Koeppel, Bigger Than Your Head

"Silverado has long produced one of California's finest sauvignons, largely because it was among the first to take the grape seriously...The Silverado sauvignon has a different personality from those made in its formative years...but the evolution has been a good one. This vintage from Silverado offers intense grapefruit/citrus on the nose, with a touch of fig and lemon grass. It is crisp on the palate, and delivers a slightly tart finish that is typical of the grape variety and a wonderful foil for savory tapas and cheeses. 91 Pts"

"Smooth, lush and silky with citrus fruit and bracing acidity; juicy, balanced and long; elegant and complex." 90 Pts

2012 Miller Ranch Sauvignon Blanc: Sauvignon Blanc has tremendous vibrancy and exotic aromatics. Our road map to creating Miller Ranch is simple: cold, stainless steel fermentation to preserve the citrusy freshness, multiple yeast strains to enhance the aromas and enough barrel fermented Semillon to make the texture silky.
