(From 2007 Vintage)
Our 2007 Silver Oak Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon combines elegance and depth in a balanced expression of this classic California vintage. It has a dark ruby color with a garnet edge and a complex nose of sandalwood, cedar, cassis, black cherry, dark chocolate and roasted coffee. On the palate, it is extremely rich and mouth-coating and has a long finish of concentrated fruit and spice with a slight tannic grip. With proper cellaring, this wine should give drinking pleasure through 2033.
Tight, earthy and unusually tannic for this wine, with fresh earth, mineral and dried currant fruit shaded by a dill-coconut flavor.
(2006) built around creamy mocha, cedary oak and dill flavors, with dried currant, sage and underbrush notes. full bodied and balanced, this smoothes out on the finish where it gains a black licorice and mineral edge. decant. source: WS
Had with a standing rib roast and roasted vegetables. We let it breathe for about an hour and then decanted. While very good it seemed a bit tired/possibly past it's peak.
great nose...vanilla and bright fruit; smooth and flavorful on the pallate. unfortunately no finish exceptdry. would like more on the back
