2013 - 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 A warm, dry spring brought early bud break, helped with canopy vigor and berry size and created ideal conditions for flowering and fruit set under sunny skies. With the exception of one heat spike in late June/early July, temperatures were consistently in the zone for optimal vine activity, resulting in notably healthy vines are fruit went through veraison and started ripening. Tasting Notes Smooth and elegant, the 2013 SOLO Cabernet Sauvignon offers bold aromas of cherry and raspberry that carry over onto the palate. Sweet black fruit flavors with a layer of lightly toasted oak and cola. This is a full-bodied Cabernet with an exquisite core of lush flavor.
