1998 Silver Oak Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

Wine Description

(From 2009 Vintage) The 2009 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a ripe, rich, layered, yet elegant wine. It has a dark, ruby color and a complex nose of cassis jam, mocha, violets and nutmeg. On the palate, the wine has a delectable berry-laden entry and a rich, mouthcoating mid-palate. The tannins are beautifully integrated and the wine has a long, satiny finish.

Winemaker's Notes

The 1998 Alexander Valley is a beautifully elegant Cabernet Sauvignon with a medium ruby-red color and a nose of blackberry, strawberry, ginger and soy sauce. It is seamless on the palate and has a fruity attack, elegant mid-palate with a long finish of fruit and herbs. Enjoy now through 2018.

    supposed to be peaking was slightly tart needed some decent o2. after about 20 min wine settled - chocolate anise plum and spicy end notes not as full bodied as expected smooth drinking after it got more oxygen lacking in complexity did not fully meet peak expectations
