Fully mature and made in the Silver Oak style of lavishly oaked, spicy, earthy, smoky wines, the dense ruby/purple-colored, full-bodied 2001 exhibits a sweet, juicy, seductive, All-American, bombastic style. Although not for everybody, it will continue to drink well for another decade.

Aging very nicely, this is smooth, supple and complex, in great drinking space. Ripe currant, wild berry, mocha, dill, cedar and tobacco are full-bodied, gaining on the finish. 2001 California Cabernet blind retrospective (June 2011). Drink now through 2017. 30,000 cases made.

Decanted for about 30 minutes. Nose full of leather & pencil shavings and flavors of white pepper & dried fruit. Nice legs, color with no tannins but body was very thin. Possible this one was past its prime. Disappointing.

Still abit young but continued opening up very nicely after the first hour. Still there was lots of glycerin combined with soft and slightly sweet tannins. Dark fruit and slightly earthy. Went along well with the filet mignon, salmon, halibut and dessert !

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.
