Silver Oak Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

Wine Details

Wine Description

(1996 Vintage) The 1996 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon has a dark ruby color. It has a nose of black plums, rose petal and soy sauce. This wine is very complex and lively with an extremely long finish of fruit and spice. It will continue to improve through 2021 with proper cellaring.

    Tasted by Zed57 on 2/28/2012: A well aged California cab. A distinctive nose that is intriguing. Bold herbaceous flavours that are classic silver oak with cedar and dill. May not be everyone's taste but I loved it. It has peaked. Don't wait. Wish I had more but alas this is the last.
