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.

Silverado’s estate 2003 Cab is a worthy followup to their ’02. So classy, only Napa makes Cabs this balanced, rich and ageworthy, and this one from Stags Leap defines Tchelistcheff’s description of an iron fist in a velvet glove. Great now, although young, and will age effortlessly for at least 10 years, probably longer.

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.

Silverado’s flagship offering, the 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon Solo (100% Cabernet Sauvignon from a single vineyard) ratchets up the color, richness, texture and body, but not the alcohol (only 14.2% versus 14.5% in the Napa cuvee). The wine offers plenty of floral notes intermixed with blueberries, black raspberries, black currants and cherries. Lots of layers, good acidity and a tight but promising finish suggest this wine’s best days are still ahead of it. Tight and young for a 2003, it will benefit from another 3–4 years of cellaring and should drink well over the following 15–20 years.

Beautiful Cabernet. Has all the big, ripe juicy fruit and lavish oak of most Napa Cabs, plus elegance and harmonious balance, the hallmarks of tasteful, knowledgeable winemaking. Gets better and more interesting as it warms in the glass. Hard to beli... Wine Enthusiast. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2003 Silverado Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml

Here'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 2-4 years of cellaring, and should last for two decades or more.
