Silverado Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

2004 Cabernet Sauvignon SOLO Technical Information Harvest Date: September 18 & 22 Varietal Composition: 100 percent Cabernet Sauvignon Vineyard: 100 percent Stags Leap vineyard Appellation: Stags Leap District, Napa Valley Bottling Date: September, 2006 Release Date: September, 2007 Vintage Notes: Following wet February weather, warm March temperatures forced early budbreak, and unusually dry spring conditions, plus a brief heat spike at the end of April, hastened flowering and kept vine vigor under control. Summer was moderate until picking time, when a brief hot spell jump-started what had been a gradual, if early, beginning to the harvest. Vineyard Notes: On land that has supported vines since the 1880s, our vineyard was the third property planted to Cabernet Sauvignon in what became the Stags Leap District, and fruit from this property helped establish the area's reputation in the 1970s. SOLO is produced entirely from grapes grown in this vineyard, which stretches across the rocky terraces and gentle slopes between the Silverado Trail and the Napa River. It displays all the ripe and complex fruit, supple texture, and solid structure that helped define the District, the most distinctive Cabernet-growing region in the Napa Valley. Winemaking Notes: We picked at 25.3 Brix, with yields of 2.58 tons to the acre. Average 16 day maceration. The wine averaged 16 months in barrels, 32 percent new French oak. Overall blend - 85 percent French oak and 15 percent American. 1,446 cases were bottled. Analysis: Alcohol, 14.6%; titratable acidity, 5.80 grams per liter; pH, 3.63; volatile acidity, 0.54 grams per liter; residual sugar, dry. Tasting Notes: Aromas of plum, cocoa powder and cherry cola. The 2004 SOLO is full bodied with a broad mid-palate texture full of dense dark red fruit flavor. Silky tannins help give the wine a long and lingering finish.

The Stags Leap District is one of the smallest, yet most renowned, wine growing regions in Napa Valley. Here, Silverado Vineyards has been quietly producing world-class wines from their state-of-the-art winery for over 20 years. With grapes sourced almost entirely from Silverado’s family-owned estate vineyards, these hand-crafted wines are created in small lots with extreme care. They express richness, elegance and age-worthiness. Silverado wines are unique - one-of-a-kind blends of location, philosophy and winemaking style. The Mediterranean-style stone winery, established in 1981, stands on a knoll above the Silverado Trail in the heart of the Stags Leap District. Silverado is a legendary name from the early mining days. Today it symbolizes the Miller family’s long term commitment to the future of Napa Valley wine. Read less

A blend of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot, 2% Cabernet Franc. Ripe jammy like taste fruit and cool aromas with a touch of dried herbs. Medium to full body with cherry, raspberry and mineral flavors. Goes well with a New York Strip.

    The 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon possesses a dense ruby/purple color along with a sweet nose of creme de cassis and new oak, medium body, an elegant style, and an attractive finish. Drink it over the next 5-7 years. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2004 Silverado Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml

    Ripe jammy fruit and cola aromas with hints of dried herbs. Medium to full body with cherry, raspberry and mineral flavors. Lively acidity leads to a fruity and persistent finish.

    Wine Advocate ReviewThe top cuvee, the 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon Solo (100% Cabernet Sauvignon), is a classic example of a Stags Leap offering. Elegant but substantial, with notes of spring flowers, blueberries, black currants, and subtle barrique, it cuts a broad swath across the palate, but is light on its feet. Refreshing and delicate despite serious flavor intensity, it can be drunk now or cellared for 12-15 years.”Wine & Spirits ReviewRated 91Monumental in scale, this wine is too vast and extracted to grasp all in one taste. There's menthol, mineral tannin, toasted oak and a tremendous amount of juicy red and black fruit to conceal its substantial alcohol. Rich rather than long in flavor, this can be enjoyed as a young wine with prime rib.Wine Tasting NotesAromas of plum, cocoa powder and cherry cola. The SOLO is full-bodied with a broad mid-palate texture full of dense dark red fruit flavor. Silky tannins help give the wine a long and lingering finish.
