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.

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.

Herersquo;s a complex, layered wine that impresses for sheer power. It floods the mouth with ripe flavors of black currants, blackberries, black cherries, dark chocolate, anise and cedar that finish deep and long. Delicious and dry, but quite closed now in tannins, and needs time. Best after 2009, at least.

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.

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.

Oh, what a perfect expression of Stags Leap this is. The 100% Cab does have a soft voluptuousness, but itrsquo;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.

Bold aromas of black currant, black currant leaf, plum, black cherry and kirsch. Smooth, elegant and very sleek, with a very fine texture and silky tannins. It has pure fruit and is made to impress. A bit of a bruiser but has zest and freshness. Drink: 2013.

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.
