Red Cabernet Sauvignon
Producer Notes

Silver Oak was founded in the early 1970s by Ray Duncan and Justin Meyer, a former winemaker with Christian Brothers. The founders' goal was to create exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon that would be distinguished by its elegance and finesse. In most years, the wines are made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes sourced from the Alexander and Napa Valleys. The developing wine is aged 30 months in... More »

Medium red-ruby. Dark fruit aromas overwhelmed by tar and scotch oak tones, plus charry notes of dark chocolate and coffee bean. Juicy but dry and lacking flesh; where's the fruit? The slightly green finish is dried by oak. This was rather lean a year ago from barrel, and appears not to have entirely survived the extended sojourn in wood. I may be congenitally unable to appreciate the Silver Oak style.

Drink Dates 1998-2015

A blend of 96% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Cabernet Franc, the 1995 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa has turned out even better than the 1994. It possesses a more saturated ruby/purple color, as well as a more flamboyant and exotic bouquet. Moreover, it seems less evolved. Full-bodied and pure, with layer upon layer of concentrated black fruits, smoke, cedar, and toast, it should drink well for 16-17 years. The Napa offerings from Silver Oak tend to be less herbaceous and more oriented toward Cabernet Sauvignon's black fruit spectrum than the Alexander Valley cuvees. They are every bit as exotic and ostentatious as the Alexander Valley cuvees, but more classic, tannic, perhaps longer-lived, and slightly less approachable.

Wonderful sense of balance, harmony and finesse, with ripe, polished cedary currant, plum and black cherry. Finishes with supple tannins and a whiff of dill. 10,400 cases made.

this was a lovely wine, plenty of fruit and structure. Began as a fruit bomb, and the structure slowly emerged, over the course of about 30 minutes. Hard to imagine this getting much better, but should last maybe another 5 years--but why wait?

surprisingly showed little signs of age, this bottle showed perfectly, elegant, with mild infused oak. Some vanilla notes and silky cherry paired well with my filet.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
