Description

Located on the historic Silverado Trail in Napa Valley’s Oak Knoll District, Black Stallion
Estate Winery pays homage to the rich history of the 32-acre estate which was once home to
the Silverado Equestrian Center. The property was purchased in 2010 by the Indelicato family,
a fourth generation family-owned company founded in 1924. Sourcing from the most
prestigious vineyards, the winery is committed to making only the most expressive wines.

Wine tasting notes

The 2016 vintage continues our signature profile of a slightly softer, and approachable Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. This rich and refined wine doesn’t require years of further aging to achieve ideal balance and enjoy upon release. The full-bodied structure is a hallmark. The wine opens with stunning aromas of blackberry, black cherry and toasty scents; the palate is concentrated with bold, velvety flavors of cassis, plum and blackberry. Intense, concentrated mature fruit, bold, but integrated tannins and beautifully balanced acidity extend to an elegant finish.

Winery information

Black Stallion Estate Winery

Located on the grounds of a historic equestrian center, Black Stallion Estate Winery is the latest addition to the distinguished collection of wineries in the Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley. Each of the varietals we produce is handcrafted and carefully blended from small vineyard lots. Each lot is fermented and aged separately in our cellar until just prior to bottling when we carefully blend these lots together to achieve wines of balance with layers of complex flavors. Black Stallion Estate Winery is dedicated to crafting high quality wines that are elegant and distinctive yet approachable.

Vinification notes

A careful pursuit of perfection underlies each step taken to craft this Cabernet Sauvignon. Grapes from each vineyard were fermented separately, yielding an array of distinct characteristics. Hillside fruit contributed firm tannins, while fruit from lower elevations brought plush, rich flavors. A rigorous barrel program matches each lot to the type of oak best suited to enhance it. Lots for the 2016 vintage matured in different types of barrels; each barrel was chosen for an ability to impart a subtle range of flavors. After undergoing malolactic fermentation in barrel, followed by 16 months of aging, the lots were evaluated blind. Multiple trial blends led to the final cuvée, which includes small amounts of rich Petit Verdot strengthening the mid-palate and Merlot, which skillfully distinguishes this Cabernet’s poised, layered structure.
