"This is an exuberant red with lots of currants and menthol aromas and flavors. Full and fruity with a firm, racy texture and a powerful finish. Give it two to three years of bottle age to come together more." 92 Points

"This is a brilliant wine, the best Cabernet Sauvignon I have ever tasted from Silverado."
"The prodigious 2007 Solo has a saturated dense purple color to the rim, a wonderfully sweet nose of blue and black fruits intermixed with charcoal, incense, floral notes, a hint of espresso, and subtle wood. It is fabulously rich and full-bodied, yet at the same time, the elegance is very apparent, and the wine well-focused and pure. This is a brilliant wine, the best Cabernet Sauvignon I have ever tasted from Silverado. It should evolve for 25-30 or more years."

"This has amazing depth and texture to it."
"This has amazing depth and texture to it. Aromas of raspberries, minerals, and currants. Very intense. Full body, with ultra-fine tannins. Goes on for a minute or two on the finish. I really like the polish to this. I think of Leoville-Las-Cases when you taste this. Leave it for three to four years. "

"Fresh, lively palate with silky-smooth fruit..."
"Chocolate, coffee, spice, plum, oak and black fruit nose. Fresh, lively palate with silky-smooth fruit, leathery tannins and a long spicy length. Needs time. Drink 2014-2020."
