Silver Oak Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Winemaker Notes

The 2014 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon has a garnet color with a ruby red rim and bluish tint. It has an alluring nose of chocolate-covered strawberries, vanilla, nutmeg, truffle and sage. On the palate, it has a broad yet delicate entry and offers cranberry flavors. These flavors are complemented by raspberry and pluot with savory black olive characters on the mid-palate. The wine finishes with silky tannins, cedar and bramble flavors withexcellent length and return. This wine is drinkable upon release, but given proper cellaring conditions can be enjoyed through 2038.

Blend: 97.7% Cabernet Sauvignon, 1.3% Merlot, 0.5% Petit Verdot, 0.3% Malbec, 0.2% Cabernet Franc

COMMENTARY: The drama of Silver Oak, well, in reality, there is little at all. Their Cabernet Sauvignons—both the Napa Valley and this one, the Alexander Valley—have become amazingly consistent. While every year has its own spin, there is always comfort in picking up a bottle of Silver Oak. The 2014 vintage is perhaps the most enticing in recent years. TASTING NOTES: At this youthful stage, the wood is quite prominent, yet its lovely red fruit comes through as well. Its aromas and flavors are nicely melded and will continue to soften and gain complexity over time. There is no drama, this is a wine one can always count on to be true to itself.
