Silverado Vineyards SOLO Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

$99.99

  Silverado is one of Napa Valley's classic wineries, and their new small production, top-of-the-line Solo Cabernet is perhaps the finest ever produced at this venerable estate. 95 Points Wine Enthusiast:  "In a good vintage, which it was, Silverado’s Solo bottling is always worthy of aging. It would be a tragedy to open this 100% Cabernet before 2018, and even then it might be too early. Dry and full bodied, this offers complex blackberry and cassis flavors, with a grounding herbal quality suggestive of sage. The tannins are profound, making the wine tight now. Cellar Selection." 93+ Points Robert Parker: "Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the inky/purple-colored Cabernet Sauvignon Solo offers up sweet cassis fruit notes intermixed with kirsch, licorice and spice. Elegant, medium to full-bodied, pure and rich, this impressive effort reveals good acidity, vibrancy and freshness. It should drink well for 15-20 years. This is a brilliant wine, the best Cabernet Sauvignon I have ever tasted from Silverado."

Started in 1981 by Ron and Diane Disney Miller. Three generations, almost 40 years later, Miller Family continues to source grapes entirely from their family-owned estate Napa vineyards. 100% Cab, elegant dark fruit aromas with herb and oak notes. Blackberry, currants and raspberry, pepper spice and leather. Fine tannins, lingering fresh finish ending withoak and mineral tang. Very nice.

Completely exceeded my expectations. More minerality and spice than fruit. Paired well with smoked ribs. I'm a believer!
