2017 – Geo Cabernet Sauvignon

In 1988, Ron and Diane Miller, purchased the Mt George Vineyard, the site of the first vinifera plantings in the Coombsville AVA. Situated in a quiet corner of the Napa Valley a few miles east of the city of Napa, Mt George is a vineyard of undeniable strength. As the 20th anniversary of Silverado’s first Mt George harvest approached in 2012, the decision was made to make a wine for the occasion. It is called GEO – Greek for “Earth” and short for “George” – and it represents the highest expression of single-vineyard Cabernet from this extraordinary place.

Vintage 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.

Tasting Notes

Robust aromatics of florals, black cherry liquor, crushed hazelnut, and hints of anise, baking spices and dark chocolate. Full-bodied, with good tannin structure and flavors of black cherry crisp, blackberries, sweet dark plum, mocha, violets and a long seamless finish.
