Smells a lot like a cherry pie, sweet and spicy. There's also a few savory notes that mix in there. Palate is back to sweet, full of big red fruit, cola, syrup. Finishes with chocolate.

Jammy nose that's a little bit raisiny, with a hint of vanilla. The mouth is smooth and dry, with a little bit of dark earth flavor mid-palate and maybe a hint of cork taint.

Big Napa cab, dark berries, plums, somewhat sharp on the tannins, probably opened this bottle a few years too early.

Sweet and spicy nose. Very nice spicy and dark cherry in the mouth. A very nice full palate with lots of dark fruits. A bit tannic on the finish.

A brilliant effort, the 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Solo (100% Cabernet Sauvignon) exhibits a dark ruby/purple hue in addition to a classic bouquet of graphite, licorice, black currants, dark cherries, underbrush, and fruitcake. Broad, full-bodied, and deep with moderate tannin, and terrific sweetness and length, it is an elegant, but substantial, authoritatively flavored Cabernet Sauvignon that will benefit from 2-4 years of cellaring, and should last for two decades or more.

Stags Leap District cabernet hits the texture receptors, and this one is the kind of textural pleasure that makes consideration of its fruit character moot. If you search, you might find candied violets, cocoa, a touch of black earthiness. The flavor detail may come with time, though the wine is easy to drink now, a soft, lush red for filet mignon.

The prodigious 2007 Solo has a saturated dense purple color to the rim, a wonderfully sweet nose of blue and black fruits intermixed with charcoal, incense, floral notes, a hint of espresso, and subtle wood. It is fabulously rich and full-bodied, yet at the same time, the elegance is very apparent, and the wine well-focused and pure. This is a brilliant wine, the best Cabernet Sauvignon I have ever tasted from Silverado. It should evolve for 25–30 or more years.

Deep ruby in the glass. Aromas of black plum and brandied cherry emerg, followed by eucalyptus and rocky mineral. The palate is medium bodied, fresh and savory, showcasing ripe cherry, blackberry, pepper and a hint of roasted meat, while the midpala... Elizabeth Becker.

WA 95pts. - JS 95pts. - James Suckling raves "I really like the polish to this. I think of Leoville-Las-Cases when you taste this." Winemaker Notes - Pure ripe red fruit aromas with layers of earth and spice. Broad palate with plum fruit and hints of dried herb that lead to a finish with perfectly balanced tannin. Crafted entirely from grapes grown on Silverado s Stags Leap Vineyard surrounding the winery, SOLO has one driving philosophy: location. One of the first three vineyards planted to Cabernet in the appellation, Silverado s Stags Leap vineyard helped establish the reputation of the District. Specific clone selection, (Silverado s on Heritage Clone, UCD 30), micro block fermentation, a restrained approach to oak aging: everything Silverado does with SOLO is tailored to honor the purity of fruit which expresses this special site in the heart of Napa Valley.

Winemaker's Notes:

Deep ruby with Cabernet-like intensity, concentrated aromas of ripe berries, dark chocolate, hazelnut and truffles. With a medium-full body, this wine has a rich texture, bright cherry, sweet oak, cocoa and bay leaf flavors, and a long finish.
