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.
