It takes just as long to produce a bottle of Cabernet today as it did in 1972, and that’s just fine with Silver Oak, because what matters most is timelessness.
The 2016 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is ruby in colour with a magenta rim. It has an enticing nose of cassis, blackberry, vanilla, sage and spearmint. Upon entry, this wine builds from potpourri and bramble to a bright pop of raspberry on the mid-palate. A juicy finish with chewy tannins and a medium length, it will provide drinking pleasure through 2042 with proper cellaring or enjoy it now!
94.6% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Merlot, 0.5% Petit Verdot, 0.5% Cabernet Franc, 0.4% Malbec
