- 2006 SOLO - 92 Points
"...strength to go the distance."
“This has the richness of humus and freshly turned earth, its tannin dark, savory and intensely mineral, as black as iron filings. The space between the layers of tannin is filled with ripe cherry flavor, a fruitiness with more than enough strength to go the distance, needing years or a thick sirloin to completely surround the structure of the wine. 92 Points”

- 2006 SOLO Cabernet Sauvignon - 94 Points
"...a stylistic, flavorful, elegant,..."
"The 2006 Solo has a dense purple color, a big, sweet nose of lead pencil shavings intermixed with crème de cassis, new saddle leather, charcoal, and spice box. Its brilliant delineation and full-bodied texture, with nothing out of place in a seamless integration of all its building blocks make for a stylistic, flavorful, elegant, yet powerful wine to drink over the next 20-25 years."

- 2006 SOLO - 94 Points
"...it should develop for many years..."
"Floods the mouth with ripe red stone fruits, berries and currants, as well as earthier notes of herbs, carob and minerals. The oak is strongly sensed, but entirely in keeping with the wine’s volume. Cellar this very fine wine until at least 2012, and it should develop for many years thereafter. 94 Points"

- 2005 Estate Merlot - 4 Stars
One of the Best Merlots in Years!
"A supple, complex, full-bodied, well balanced Merlot, with light oakiness, and a long finish, tasting of plum, blueberry, cedar, toast, and black currant. Fine quality. One of the best Merlots in years from Silverado. 4 Stars"
