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 »

Issue Issue 102

(with 8% cabernet franc, 6% merlot and 3% petit verdot) Rich, full nose combines roasted currant, cedar, spice box, chocolate mint, coconut and smoky oak, along with a lightly leafy quality. The lushest and fullest wine of this tasting, with the most harmonious combination of fruit and acidity. Dense but firm and nicely delineated. Finishes with fine, spreading tannins that coat the mouth and teeth.

Drink Dates 2002-2017

The opaque ruby-colored 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa is a blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc, 6% Merlot, and 3% Petit Verdot. The wine reveals a sweet attack of fruitcake, spice box, dried herbs, and black fruits. It is bordeaux-like, with hard, tough tannin, an angular personality, and an astringent finish. This is a perplexing offering. There is an impressive beginning, but the finish is narrow and pinched, hence the question mark. My instincts suggest it will age for 12-15 years, but will always be dry and austere, without the charm and sweetness of the finest vintages.

Drink Dates 2003-2012

Dill, lavender and mocha scents are followed by a trace of coconut and layers of spicy currant, herb, sage and plum flavors. Very rich and concentrated. Impeccably balanced, with a long, persistent aftertaste that keeps echoing fruit and oak. Some will find the oak excessive, others just the Silver Oak signature. 20,091 cases made.

What a terrific bottle of Silver Oak that took me back to the early days of my love affair with this producer following a recent string of disapppointing mid 80's stuff that had clearly seen better days. Elegant nose, nice balance of fruit (berries), subtle flavors of oak (very un Silver Oak like), great finish. A real finesse wine that I would put up against any great California cab.

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.
