Reviews For This Wine


 
Wine Spectator | 91

Stylish, rich and complex, with classy, smoky oak notes adding dimension and flavor to the dense, chewy core of currant and herb-laced Cabernet flavors that are long and full. One of the better '88s.

Initially I thought it was dead; unpleasant resin smell, but then after decanting and swirling in the glass it really opened up, became sweety, nutty, long aftertaste. A revelation of the evening, because this is not their best wine and I never liked silver oak that much

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.
