Among The First to Plant Cabernet in the Stags Leap District: 2020 Silverado Vineyards Block Blend Chardonnay Carneros

Ever heard of Silverado Vineyards? If not, you're about to discover a wine legend! These folks earned their stripes and landed on the prestigious "Top 100 Wineries" list by Wine & Spirits Magazine.

Silverado Vineyards is tucked right into the heart of the Stags Leap District and has been cooking up luxurious wines for over four decades. With Bill and Carol Foley calling the shots and Courtney Foley leading the charge, this place is like the James Bond of Napa Valley. Oh, and here's a fun fact: they were planting Cabernet vines way back in the swinging '60s when no one else dared.

These folks are simply iconic. And today, it’s time for their 2020 Silverado Vineyards Block Blend Chardonnay Carneros to shine.

What makes this wine so special, you wonder? Well, it's a 100% Chardonnay, aged for a smooth 9 months in French oak barrels. Imagine delightful aromas of tropical fruit, with just a subtle kiss of vanilla from its oak embrace. This wine embodies elegance, subtlety, and velvety smoothness.
