Meet The Best Wine By Package

04/09/2020

2014 SOLO Cabernet Sauvignon from the United States bagged the best wine by package along with three other medals.

Silverado Vineyard’s 2014 SOLO Cabernet Sauvignon from United States (Napa, CA) won the “Best Wine By Package” along with a Gold medal, “Best in Show by Country,” and “Best in Show by Varietal” at the London Wine Competition held on July 8, 2020.

The story of  2014 SOLO Cabernet Sauvignon starts in 1968 - when Harry See planted the Silverado Vineyard to Cabernet Sauvignon. Over the next two decades with careful vine selection & 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, the team at Silverado Vineyards honors this select clone designation with SOLO.

In 2014, a series of warm days & cool nights pushed Napa Valley’s vintners across the annual harvest finish line by the third week of October. In spite of the drought, the 2014 harvest resulted in a fairly abundant and very high-quality crop.

Aged for 19 months in oak barrels, 2014 SOLO Cabernet Sauvignon is a bold Cab that has aromas of dark fruit with hints of cinnamon, nutmeg, and cassis. Intense fruit, dark chocolate, toasty oak & spice lead to a velvety, long finish with refined tannins.
