Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 88

Bright red-ruby color. Black cherry, chocolate, minerals and tarry, smoky oak on the nose. Supple, oaky and pliant, with ripe, moderately deep berry flavors complicated by notes of leather and tobacco. The tannins are slightly dry but the wine is already quite approachable.

The 1994 Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley reveals a provocative nose of tobacco, black cherries, cloves, fruitcake, and spice. Some plum and raspberry fruit also emerges on the palate. This is a hedonistic, sexy, seductive, full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon with low acidity, and loads of toasty oak. It will be a huge crowd pleaser when released next year. It should show well for at least 12-15 years.

Combines ripe, rich, complex fruit with a sense of finesse and harmony. The core of anise, currant, sage and cedar unfolds to reveal more depth and complexity. Finishes with a long, satisfying aftertaste. Drink now through 2006. 39,000 cases made.

Drank with the McDougall's on Christmas Eve. The wine has definately lost a lot, slightly brown on the edge. Weight as light and flavors were dim. Somewhat disappointing from a magnum sized bottle but is was 18 years old. Should have had it 10 years ago.

The eucalyptus is gone but a fine albeit somewhat aging typical califonia cab.

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.
