Silver Oak Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 1999

Winemaker's Notes:

The 1999 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a beautifully balanced wine with a dark ruby-red color and an expressive nose of fresh cassis, violets and cinnamon. It has a lovely attack of fresh fruit and it is beautifully balanced. The finish is extremely long with a slight tannic grip. Enjoy now through 2024.

We pride ourselves on making one varietal that is food-friendly and deliciously drinkable upon release. Our story begins in the early 1970’s when Ray Duncan befriended winegrower Justin Meyer. The two formed a partnership and co-founded Silver Oak Cellars in 1972 with the bold vision of producing only Cabernet Sauvignon. Today, under the leadership of Ray’s sons David and Tim and Director of Winemaking Daniel Baron, we produce two wines: our Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Silver Oak’s unwavering focus on making exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon enables us to continually improve and refine our craft. Each of our two estates – one in Napa Valley and the other in Alexander Valley – is dedicated to producing a single wine. These two Cabernet Sauvignons consistently reflect the very best of their appellations. Our estate vineyards are ideally situated to provide optimal growing conditions for our Cabernet Sauvignon. We also work closely with top independent growers throughout the Napa and Alexander Valleys to ensure a reliable source of excellent fruit. We complement this fruit with grapes from top independent growers throughout both appellations, giving our winemaking team the flexibility they need to realize the full potential of each Silver Oak vintage. Tasting Room Tasting rooms at both of our estates are open Monday – Saturday, 9am – 5pm and Sundays from 11 am to 5 pm.  We are closed  some holidays. Read less

Dried strawberry and loamy earth on the nose. Some mushroominess. A tad puny on the palate. Perhaps it's too old? - Tasted at winery 4/21/10

More red in color, this wine had intense aromas and flavors of currants and red berries, crushed flowers, hints of peppermint, tobacco and vanilla. Long finish. A lot of young fruit but very approachable soft tannins and velvety feel. Outstanding balance of fruit, acid and alcohol. I didn’t find it had as many nuances of flavor as the Napa offering but was more pleasurable to drink. I found this was my favorite of the two Silver Oak offerings, perhaps because it was more approachable.

Fruit-forward, yet not overwhelming. Saturated with soft berry, spice, round body. Absolutely delicious! Nice tannins finish off this lovely wine.

Wine Tasting NotesThe 1999 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a beautifully balanced wine with a garnet color and a complex nose of raspberries, cassis, violets, cinnamon and caramel. It is luscious and full-bodied on the palate and has a lovely fruity attack and an incredibly long lingering finish. Properly cellared, this wine will continue to improve through 2024.

...Brooding aromas of currant syrup, licorice, naphtha and tobacco leaf. Fairly intense flavors similar to the aromas. Still quite youthfully tight, but offers solid concentration and very good length. Just a hint of greenness on the end; the firm ta... Stephen Tanzers IWC.
