Silver Oak Alexander 1986

Winemaker's Notes:

The 1986 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon has a medium ruby-red color with the start of a brick edge. It has a expressive nose of violets, cassis, licorice and allspice. This wine is rich, full, fruity and balanced with a long finish of beautifully integrated tannins. Enjoy now through 2011.

Silver Oak Cellars:
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.

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

One of the distinguished vintages, and vinter's-own that can still be acquired. Bonny's vineyard is named after the wife of the owner and is the smaller plot of land separated and at the front of the Silver Oak estate. It is wine from these grapes that Silver Oak is most proud of and vinter reserves for his own use. In 1986/87 a bottle of '86 Bonny's vineyard sold for ~$30 for which I tried a bottle and acquired a case. 7 bottles remain from my original 12 and each time I have opened a bottle - on a special occassion the wine is lush, elegant, great deal of depth which is exactly-balanced. It was brilliant in 87 and remains so!

Shows the same exotic oak and spice character of the Bonny's Vineyard bottling, but is a shade less concentrated and perhaps more elegant. Features lots of complex flavors, ranging from plum and black cherry to dill and spice. Finishes with smooth ta... Wine Spectator.
