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 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2010
($70) Bright, full red-ruby. Musky blackberry, tobacco, tar and chocolate on the nose, plus a note of dill. Plum, raspberry and tobacco flavors are intensified by sound acidity, with the musky quality carrying through in the mid-palate. Doesn't have quite enough stuffing to support its fairly serious tannins, though, with the finish showing an increasing dryness with air.
