2002 Silver Oak Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine CellarBright red-ruby. Pungent resiny oak along with currant, dark chocolate and herbs on the nose. Offers a supple texture, but today the fairly intense flavors of cassis, chocolate and mint are squashed under their heavy load of oak, which also dries the finish.
