95 Points WE
Silverado is one of Napa Valley's classic wineries, and their new small production, top-of-the-line Solo Cabernet is perhaps the finest ever produced at this venerable estate.
95 Points Wine Enthusiast: "In a good vintage, which it was, Silverado’s Solo bottling is always worthy of aging. It would be a tragedy to open this 100% Cabernet before 2018, and even then it might be too early. Dry and full bodied, this offers complex blackberry and cassis flavors, with a grounding herbal quality suggestive of sage. The tannins are profound, making the wine tight now. Cellar Selection."
93+ Points Robert Parker: "Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the inky/purple-colored Cabernet Sauvignon Solo offers up sweet cassis fruit notes intermixed with kirsch, licorice and spice. Elegant, medium to full-bodied, pure and rich, this impressive effort reveals good acidity, vibrancy and freshness. It should drink well for 15-20 years. This is a brilliant wine, the best Cabernet Sauvignon I have ever tasted from Silverado."
