Silver Oak Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2004
The 2005 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon beautifully expresses the full aromatic ripeness of this exemplary vintage. It is full bodied and yet refined, and consistent in its color, aroma, palate and finish. It has a dark garnet color and a nose of black cherry, clove, cinnamon, lavender and licorice. It is seamless on the palate with a solid core of berry fruit, velvety tannins and excellent length. With proper cellaring it should give drinking pleasure through 2032.
Love it ... just keeps approving with age.
Good depth with cola and ruby tastes. I would recommend this for a nice spicy cab as well.
Wonderful juicy cab, deep blackberry notes wonderful finish, prefer some of their earlier vintages better
Excellent! Can't go wrong with Silver Oak!
This small vineyard is a great place to see. Make sure to find what day's they are open before you go to wine country, but worth the trip.
Rich chocolate nose with hints of mocha. Very balanced and smooth. Lower acid than other Napa Cabs, very good fruit. Will clearly age. Finish is on spearmint. Very nice.
This is the first Silver Oak I've tried, and I loved it. The nose was so complex and interesting that it really built the anticipation. The kind of wine you want to drink every day for a month to learn more about it. If only I could afford to do that....
External Reviews for Silver Oak Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
2004 Twomey Merlot is an elegant, concentrated wine that balances delicacy and expression of fruit. It has a dark ruby color and a complex nose of black cherry, raspberry, violets and dark chocolate, with hints of lightly toasted bread. It offers
91 Points - Connoisseurs' Guide "7% Merlot; 5% Cabernet Franc; 2% Petit Verdot. Deep, well-defined curranty fruit is the driving force of this nicely extracted, young Cabernet, while complementary oak and deft touches of cocoa lend a boost in overall richness. If fairly full-bodied, the wine shows nary a hint of heaviness and sports a fine sense of balance from beginning to end. It is supple to start and finishes with appropriate tannins, but its astringency never gets in the way of its ongoing fruit, and time is a guaranteed remedy to its wholly acceptable toughness." 90 Points - International Wine Cellar "Good deep red. Black cherry, plum syrup and lead pencil on the nose, with a lightly roasted character and a meaty nuance. Quite pliant on the palate, with a much more velvety mouthfeel than the Alexander Valley offering and more mid-palate stuffing to support its toothcoating tannins. Here the wine's herbal element lifts the fruit. Not exactly fat but nicely sweet. Finishes with very good breadth and length. "

A refined and complex wine that combines subtlety and depth. It has a dark ruby color with a deep red edge and displays aromas of fresh blackberries, violets, cola, nutmeg and licorice. In the mouth, the wine has a juicy attack and offers great expression of fruit and spice on the mid-palate. Its fruit-driven finish is long and elegant.

The Alexander Valley cuvee is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in new oak. Somewhat superficial and light by the standards of this winery, the well-made 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley lacks that extra layer of depth, texture, and fruit. Herbaceous, with sweet red and black currant fruit, spice box, and tell-tale oakiness, this is a wine to drink during its first decade of life.
