1989, the current vintage in release, is successful for Silver Oak. The 1989 Cabernet Sauvignon-Alexander Valley exhibits a spicy, vanillin, and black olive-scented nose, rich, velvety, medium to full-bodied flavors, low acidity, and a long, lush, jammy fruit-filled finish. It does not possess any of the hard tannin or hollowness that plague many 1989s.

Gerry and Brenda Schwartz dinner party in Santa Monica. Well, it's time to drink this wine pronto if you're still cellaring it. Rather dried out, very oaky, fruit is disappearing. You can tell it DID have something to it a few years ago, but I've waited too long.

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.
