Wine Details

Wine Description

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.

Winemaker's Notes

Our 2007 Silver Oak Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a profound, fruit-driven wine from a great California vintage. It has a dark ruby color with a purple edge and an inviting nose of ripe black plum, blackberry, baking spices and soy sauce. On the palate, the wine is rich and full, reminiscent of the flavors of a berry cobbler. It has a long, fruity finish with fine grained tannins, and is a testament to exquisite ripeness at moderate alcohol.

The 1981 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon has a ruby to brick-red color. It possesses a nose of blackberry, olives, hazelnut and dill. This wine has a medium body with a long, smooth finish. This wine is starting to peak and would be best enjoyed now. Due to limited supply in our library this wine was last tasted June 2006. May need decanting due to light sediment.
