2013 Silverado Vineyards SOLO Cabernet Sauvignon; An elegant and well-structured Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon from the Stag’s Leap District.
Fruit for this wine is from a single eponymous vineyard that surrounds their estate winery in the Stag’s Leap District of Napa Valley. It is 100% UCD FPS 30, the Disney Silverado Heritage Clone. It was aged 18 months in about half new French oak.
Opaque purple color with alluring cherry, black raspberry, violet, leather and vanilla aromas. On the palate it’s medium-bodied, and persistent with mouth-watering acidity, and polished tannins that lend to its supple and elegant character. It shows focused black currant, black cherry, blackberry, plum and vanilla flavors with a hint of cola. Long finish. Approachable now, but will reward further cellaring for at least another 10 years. (Outstanding – 92pts)

About Silverado Vineyards
Silverado Vineyards was founded in 1981 by Diane Disney Miller and Ron Miller. But they had purchased two properties in the late Seventies, including the 93-acre Silverado Ranch and sold fruit to other wineries. The current winemaker Jonathan Emmerich has been on board since 1998! You can see the complete history of the winery (including timeline) here.
