Winemaker Notes

SOLO is crafted entirely from grapes grown in our Stags Leap Vineyard, one of the first three vineyards planted to Cabernet Sauvignon in the appellation. This vineyard contributed significantly to establishing the reputation of the Stags Leap District, the most distinctive Cabernet-growing region in the Napa Valley. SOLO has garnered many awards and accolades over the years.

100% Cabernet Sauvignon, Silverado-Disney Heritage Clone from the Silverado Vineyards, Stags Leap District

Bright red plum and lively cherry fruit. A full bodied palate with mineral nuances. Hints of coffee and vanilla linger on the palate and end with an elegant well-structured finish.

COMMENTARY: The 2016 Silverado Vineyards SOLO Cabernet Sauvignon is a singular beautiful wine. TASTING NOTES: This wine shines with aromas and flavors of black fruit, oak, and licorice. Try it with a grilled, well-marbled ribeye. (Tasted: February 9, 2022, San Francisco, CA)
JS 93
James Suckling
Very strong, fresh violet and blue-rose notes on the nose of this fresh, vibrant cab. The palate has a very elegant, chalky texture with brightly cut, fresh blackcurrant flavors pervading the gently grippy, focused finish. Drink or hold.
D 92
Decanter

Ripe and juicy blackcurrant, herbaceous, mulberry nose. Vibrant acidity, a hint of salinity, firm tannins. Elegant black fruit finish.

Silverado Vineyards Winery Video

Nestled in the hills on the North West side of the Stags Leap District, Silverado Vineyards Winery has been a favorite wine country destination and home to some of the Napa Valley’s most-recognized wines for almost forty years. In 1981, Ron and Diane Disney Miller and her mother, Lillian Disney, established Silverado Vineyards to make wines from the historic sites of the estate the family owns. The winery was named in honor of the Silverado Vineyard, one of the first four in Stags Leap District to plant Cabernet in the 1960s. The vineyard pays homage to the abandoned mining town at the top of the Valley which also inspired the name of the famous Silverado Trail where Silverado Vineyards and other iconic wineries of the Stags Leap District are situated. Silverado Vineyards owns five other storied vineyards across Napa Valley’s top AVAs: Miller Ranch, Mt. George, Soda Creek Ranch (Borreo), Firetree, and Vineburg. All of Silverado’s wines are estate-grown, produced and bottled. Winemaker Jon Emmerich is only the second lead winemaker in the history of Silverado Vineyards and celebrated his 30th vintage with the winery in 2020. Jon has grown Silverado’s reputation for quality and consistency along with his colleague Elena Franceschi, who has been Silverado’s associate winemaker for nearly 25 years. When Diane Miller passed away in 2013, Ron Miller became president of the Board of Directors of The Walt Disney Family Museum, and chairman of Silverado Vineyards until his passing in 2019. Diane and Ron’s children and grandchildren proudly continue to carry their family’s legacy forward as the owners of Silverado Vineyards.

Stags Leap Wine

Napa Valley, California

Legend has it that quick and nimble stags would escape the indigenous hunters of southern Napa Valley through the landmark palisades that sit just northeast of the current city of Napa. As a result, the area was given the name, Stags Leap. While its grape-growing history dates back to the mid-1800s, winemaking didn’t really take off until the mid-1970s after a small but pivotal blind tasting called the Judgement of Paris.

When a 1973 Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon won first place against its high-profile Bordeaux contenders, like Chateau Mouton Rothschild and Chateau Haut-Brion, international attention to the Stags Leap District of Napa Valley escalated rapidly.

The vineyards in this one-of-a-kind wine growing region receive hot afternoon air reflecting off of its eastern palisade formation. In combination with the cool evening breezes from the San Pablo Bay just south, this becomes an optimal environment for grape growing. While many varieties could thrive here, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot dominate with virtually no others, save for a spot or two of Syrah.

Stags Leap soils—eroded volcanic and old river sediments—encourage well established root systems and result in complex, terroir-driven wines. Stags Leap District reds have a distinct sour cherry and black berry character with baking spice and dried earth aromas, and supple tannins.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbecand Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
