  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 89

    Bright, deep red-ruby. Oak aromas of black cherry, coffee and graphite. Juicy, tight and firmly built, with black fruit flavors currently overshadowed by exotic oak tones. Shows a restrained sweetness but avoids the dryness of so many 2006 cabernets. Finishes with a fine dusting of tannins.

    The unmistakable signature of vanilla bean and coconut scents fold in nicely with taut yet supple tiers of cedar, black cherry, currant and berry jam notes. Full-bodied, ending with firm, structured tannins.

    Extremely well crafted and balanced. Perhaps a little too subtle. 2 hour decanting. Very enjoyable.

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.
