2017 - Poster Series Red Blend

Each year, after we make our final Cabernet blending decisions, there remains a small amount of quality red wine that the winemakers blend together to create a quaffable everyday table wine. The label artwork for each vintage of this wine takes inspiration from the Miller family’s collection of original poster art displayed at the winery.

Recommended Cheese Pairings: Comte or Wensleydale with Cranberries

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 This easy-drinking blend has aromas of Bing cherry and juicy pomegranate. The wine is fruit-forward with flavors of raspberry and plum, finishing with a hint of cocoa. The lively acidity is balanced with a smooth finish.
