2004 - 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.

SOLO Cabernet Sauvignon
Vintage Notes Following wet February weather, warm March temperatures forced early bud break, and unusually dry spring conditions, plus a brief heat spike at the end of April, hastened flowering and kept vine vigor under control. Summer was moderate until picking time when a brief hot spell jump-started what had been a gradual if early, beginning to the harvest.
