2002 - SOLO Cabernet Sauvignon

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.

2002 was the inaugural vintage of SOLO.

SOLO Cabernet Sauvignon
Vintage Notes Until the very end, 2002 was a mild season with few hot spells, and maturation was slow. It started icily, with frost in April and rains in May. After veraison, warm days and cool nights accelerated ripening, and by September the real heat kicked in, leading to a compressed harvest. Intense flavors and excellent balance were the happy results of the cool summer, and richness the outcome of warm picking weather.
