Silver Oak Cabernet Sauvignon
- Complex and layered expression of California Cabernet
- Dark garnet color and is bursting with fruit
- This wine should give drinking pleasure through 2032
In the theme of “choose one thing and do it well” Silver Oak, a family-owned California winery, has been dedicated to the exclusive pursuit of exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon since 1972. In our minds, they have surely succeeded as they are one of a few in a sea of wineries that’s truly achieved cult status for its Cabernet Sauvignon production and occupies an “important niche in California’s wine industry.
Our 2008 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a complex and layered expression of California Cabernet. The wine has a dark garnet color and is bursting with fruit even as it is poured. It has a nose of cassis, violets, licorice, allspice and roasting coffee. On the palate, it has an extraordinarily rich attack, a satin texture and an exuberant expression of fruit on the mid-palate that comes from picking grapes at the peak of their ripeness. The wine finishes with notions of savory umami, and fruit with a medium tannic grip. Given proper cellaring, this wine should give drinking pleasure through 2032.
