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

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.

Excellent Napa Cabernet Sauvignon. Power and elegance. Plum, cassis, bit earthy and hint of spice. Really nice long finish.

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.

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.

Silveradorsquo;s estate 2003 Cab is a worthy followup to their rsquo;02. So classy, only Napa makes Cabs this balanced, rich and ageworthy, and this one from Stags Leap defines Tchelistcheffrsquo;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.

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.

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.
