Wine Advocate | Rating: 87-89

The Alexander Valley cuvee is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in new oak. Somewhat superficial and light by the standards of this winery, the well-made 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley lacks that extra layer of depth, texture, and fruit. Herbaceous, with sweet red and black currant fruit, spice box, and tell-tale oakiness, this is a wine to drink during its first decade of life.

Fresh and vibrant, with a nice smoky mocha oak overlay joining the dried currant, sage, plum and berry flavors. Has wonderful balance, harmony and finesse, ending with a long, complex finish and just the right amount of tannins.

I think this is a nice offering! The nose is strong in old leather and hints of blue cheese. I found it dry with an earthy palate. It wasn't overly fruity and very well balanced in its taste and body. The finish is short but smooth with flavors of wild mushroom, nuts and green leafy vegetables. Could it have been better? I guess most wines can be, but it was great and worth its price/ bottle!

typical silver oak although not quite as good as other vintages in my opinion. the fruit was more subdued and couldn't quite balance out the oak. Still very smooth and the style is very consistent.

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.

Wine Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon


Cabernet Sauvignon is perhaps the world's best known red variety, with its full-bodied, intense profile. An offspring of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, it is the primary grape of Bordeaux's Left Bank (Medoc and Graves regions) and the Napa Valley, but can be found growing all over the world. Typical descriptors for Cabernet Sauvignon are cassis, cedar, mint, black pepper, eucalyptus, and pencil lead.
