Silverado SOLO 2013 Review | Stags Leap Cabernet Sauvignon

Posted on April 27, 2017
The Fermented Fruit

The Silverado SOLO Cabernet Sauvignon is a full-bodied effort revealing a tightly wound, juicy core of intense crème de cassis, black raspberry and kirsch liqueur flavors framed by firm, dusty tannins. Despite its depth and power, it possesses exquisite balance with lively acidity providing fine freshness. Nuances of smoke, graphite, underbrush, dusty cocoa, loam and lingering spices contribute to the overall interest of this multidimensional and harmonious effort. There’s plenty of potential here, and personally I wouldn’t touch this for another ten years. Score: 94
