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."

2012 SOLO Cabernet Sauvignon : 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.
