Silkwood Wines began life in 1979 with a Chardonnay produced at Spring Mountain Winery in St. Helena. This Chardonnay won great reviews and was served frequently in the Reagan White House. President Reagan, Ed Meiss, Michael Dever and George Bush also served it and transported it aboard Air Force One to French, Canadian and Mexico Summits. My grandfather produced Alicante Bouschet until phyloxera wiped out the vines. He planted rice, which controlled the pest and made eight barrels a year from a few vines of AB and Muscat. My family continues to produce rice in Northern California. – Description from Dragac

  • Silkwood Petite Sirah 2007


    Sulfury nose, juniper berry nose, Big entry, strict on the palate with a pretty pure if extracted wild berry fruit tone, a touch soft but expansively textured, lots of depth here with a bit of sweet citrus notes on top then a nice pipe tobacco element and plenty of big fruit tannins emerging in the mouth. Finishes a bit short and disjointed. See... Read More

    Vegetal notes with vanilla & toasted oak on the nose leading to big, burly tea fruits, pencil lead, spice, earth and wood that obscure the black berry fruits underneath. Read More
