    Winemaker's 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.

    Critical Acclaim:

    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.

    This has amazing depth and texture to it. Aromas of raspberries, minerals, and currants. Very intense. Full body, with ultra-fine tannins. Goes on for a minute or two on the finish. I really like the polish to this. I think of Leoville-Las-Cases when you taste this.
