The classically-styled 1985 Napa bottling exhibits a huge, sweet, jammy, cassis, and toasty nose that soars from the glass. Full-bodied, soft, and velvety-textured, with outstanding concentration and a smooth as silk finish, this fully mature wine is capable of lasting another 10-15 years.

Mature classic Silver Oak Napa. Straightforward, pure fruit still dominant and an explosive bouquet upon uncorking, showing some elegance in maturity. Oak is balanced and distinctively American. Great color with no orange edge. Still wants for a little more complexity.

About This Producer


Silver Oak was founded in the early 1970s by Ray Duncan and Justin Meyer, a former winemaker with Christian Brothers. The founders' goal was to create exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon that would be distinguished by its elegance and finesse. In most years, the wines are made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes sourced from the Alexander and Napa Valleys. The developing wine is aged 30 months in American Oak barrels and then cellared about 15 months before release. Silver Oak aims to make a velvety style Cabernet that is drinkable upon release. In addition to the well-known Alexander and Napa Valley Cabernets, Silver Oak has also produced North Coast and Bonny's Vineyard Cabernets in select vintages. After 30 years of partnership between Ray and Justin, the Duncan family is currently the sole owner of the property.
