1979 Silver Oak Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley

Wine Description

(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.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2004 Vintage) Distinctly Alexander Valley in its restraint and grace, this wine takes its time to gain clarity in its flavors. It contrasts light fruit and plump tannins, finishing with the taste of chocolate-covered espresso beans.
