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.

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.

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. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2007 Silverado Vineyards Solo Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml

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.

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.

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.

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.
