  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 89

    Presenting a subtle, graceful mix of herb, ripe berry, black tea and tobacco, this is intense without being weighty, ending with firm, fine-grained tannins.

    Good wine, smooth and goes down easy.

    lighter bodied cabernet, decent fruit and too much oak, may be just past its time.

    Unmistakable cedar notes on the nose. Those with whom I was sharing this bottle all agreed with cherry on the palate with just a hint of white pepper. The fruit and tannins were well integrated. Loved the long, silky finish. I would highly recommend this vintage for purchase!

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.
