Silver Oak was founded in the early 1970s by Ray Duncan and Justin Meyer, a former winemaker with Christian Brothers.

92 points Robert Parker: "The dark ruby-colored 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley exhibits a pronounced smoky, espresso bean, and kirsch-scented nose. Round, dense, rich, full-bodied, and open-knit, its low acid flavors are undeniably appealing. Black olives make an appearance in the wine's aromatics as it sits in the glass. Anticipated maturity: now-2015." (01/00)

Drink now, or maybe don't so as not to ruin your fond memories of this once extravagant bottling. Gone is much of the richness and well-rounded, well-extracted fruit, replaced with a one note, fairly pedestrian experience that does not begin to hint at what this was in its younger days.

This wine is done. Drinkable, but not to Silver Oak standards. If you own it, open it now.

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.
