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.

Expert Reviews

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.

Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon built its reputation on Bordeaux's Left Bank. Here, in the district of Medoc, the varietal is the key component of blended wines that also may include some Merlot and Cabernet Franc, and even Malbec and Petit Verdot. Moving slightly south, Cabernet Sauvignon meets Merlot in roughly equal proportions in the red wines of Graves. In both of these Bordeaux regions, the top bottles...
