Silverado Vineyards Solo Cabernet Sauvignon 2009
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Stags Leap District|
In a good vintage, which 2009 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.
Presents a trim mix of modest berry fruit and earthiness. Shy on richness and depth, but appealingly accessible. Drink now through 2018. 1,480 cases made.
