Silverado Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap District Solo 2007
Cherries and chocolate. A little tannic for my taste (I'm used to less tannic Napa cabs).
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.
Big Napa cab, dark berries, plums, somewhat sharp on the tannins, probably opened this bottle a few years too early.
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.
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.
External Reviews for Silverado Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap District Solo
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 25ndash;30 or more years.
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 2ndash;4 years of cellaring, and should last for two decades or more.
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.

Oh, what a perfect expression of Stags Leap this is. The 100% Cab does have a soft voluptuousness, but it's also strong in tannins, and packed with black currant and cherry flavors. Absolutely delicious now, and should hold and improve through 2015 at least.
Bright, saturated red-ruby. Aromas of black fruits, menthol, coffee and mocha. Then surprisingly sweet, supple and seamless, with enticing dark fruits and spicy oak spreading over the palate. Broad and creamy; seems distinctly more pliant and graceful than the Limited bottling. Finishes with toothcoating tannins and very good breadth.
