Silver Oak Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 1992

Winemaker's Notes:

The 1992 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon has a dark, ruby-red color and a classic nose of cassis, cigar box, chocolate, roasting coffee and cinnamon. This wine has a very full body, harmonious with echoes of cassis in flavor, which beautifully balances a long, slightly tannic finish. This lovely example of Alexander Valley Cabernet is drinking beautifully now and will continue to improve through 2015 given proper cellar conditions.

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

First came across Silver Oak completly by accident driving through Napa Valley and happened upon their release day in 1994. Crowds were still small, went baack two years later and in was a zoo. Love their earlier offerings lately they seem to be falling off.....

Wonderful wine. We drank from a magnum and it was intense and flavorful from start to finish. A long balanced finish. Delicious.

Absolutely fabulous. Although pricey, it seems to fall under the radar when compared to the Caymus' of the world. I can say that Silver Oak is easily in my top 2 or 3 when it comes to Napa Cabs.
