About Silver Oak Cellars
Prestigious and fashionable, Silver Oak produces only two wines, its Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Both are medium-bodied and smooth, with exotic suggestions of bourbon, cocoa butter and chocolate from the American oak barrels in which they are aged for 30 months or longer.
87-88 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 1999
Good ruby-red. Cooler aromas of cherry, redcurrant, iodine, licorice and mint; this is more red fruit, while the '95 Napa bottling is more black. Supple and lush on entry but with only moderate depth of flavor; I find slightly edgy acids and a green quality. Lacks a bit of verve.
