2014 – Solo Cabernet Sauvignon

Winner of three ‘Best in Show’ awards, 95 points, and a gold medal at the 2020 London Wine Competition!

In 1968, Harry See planted the Silverado Vineyard to Cabernet Sauvignon. Over the next two decades with careful vine selection and cultivation, the Silverado Clone emerged becoming the only Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon designated as a “Heritage Clone”, by the University of California, Davis. Each year, we honor this select clone designation with SOLO.

Vintage Notes

A series of warm days and cool nights pushed Napa Valley’s vintners and growers across the annual harvest finish line by the third week of October. This year’s harvest will go down as one of the earliest ever in Napa Valley and it will also be noted for near-perfect weather throughout the growing season, resulting in a fairly abundant and very high-quality crop. In spite of the drought, vintners are using words like, “quality,” “depth of flavor” and “excellent” to describe their expectations for the 2014 vintage. Many are also using “good fortune” among the blessings they are counting in a season where Mother Nature threw a curveball.

Tasting Notes

This bold Cabernet Sauvignon has aromas of dark cherries and plum, rose, and hints of cinnamon, nutmeg and cassis. Intense fruit, dark chocolate, toasty oak, and spice lead to a velvety, long finish with refined tannins.
