2007 - 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.

Vintage Notes The year began dry with some very cold days and single-digit nighttime temperatures around the New Year Holiday. The season continued dry, with about 60 percent of normal precipitation throughout the appellation. Temperatures were warmer than normal as winter continued into spring, resulting in earlier budding, bloom and set in the vineyards across all varieties. The summer growing season continued on the mild to cool side, with few days topping 100 degrees, even in the warmest locations in the appellation. A heat spike around the Labor Day holiday added the boost of sugar development that growers were looking for to complement the excellent acid structure.
