In 1968, Silverado's estate vineyard became the third planted to Cabernet Sauvignon in the Stags Leap District, now world renowned for its Cabernet Sauvignon. Over the next two decades, through careful observation and meticulous field selection, an entirely new clone of Cabernet Sauvignon emerged. The vines had adapted to Silverado Vineyard's steep, shale soils to produce fruit with intense plum, red currant and cassis characters. The University of California at Davis acknowledged this unique vine with a 'Heritage' designation. It is one of only three Cabernet Sauvignons to attain this status-and the only one from Stags Leap District. Each year, we honor this achievement with our limited release SOLO Cabernet Sauvignon, lovingly crafted from this single, extraordinary clone.

Wine AdvocateThe dark-colored 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Solo possesses dusty, loamy soil notes, moderate fruit intensity and minimal concentration and depth. It, too, is underwhelming. Drink now-2020. All-in-all, this quartet of wines is very disappointing considering the greatness of 2012.
