(From 2010 Vintage) Well, here we are, I have been sipping and savoring Silver Oak Cabernets since the mid-1970's. My notebooks tell me that I have tasted almost every vintage. The '10 Alexander Valley is pretty fine and shows just how far this iconic winery has come. This is a complete wine- ripe red currants, sweet American oak and supple tannins.
(From 2010 Vintage) Our 2010 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a vibrant, elegant expression of this classic appellation from a cooler vintage. It has a deep garnet color and an enticing nose of cassis liqueur, blueberry coulis, tobacco, tarragon and roasting coffee. The seamless palate starts with a berry-laden attack, follows with a full-bodied mid-palate, and ends with a long, savory finish with fine-grained, well-integrated tannins.
