Silver Oak Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 1995

Winemaker's Notes:

The 1995 Alexander Valley is a luscious, voluptuous wine that is refined and structured. It has a dark, ruby-red color and an expressive nose of tobacco leaf, blackberry, licorice, chocolate and Asian spices. This is an elegant wine with an intense full body and a very long, fruity finish. Enjoy now through 2021.

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

This was soft and smooth on the palate. Slightly sweet with mild hints of cocoa and supple berry notes. Tannins and alcohol nearly absent. Bottle aging gave this the feel of a delicate Bordeaux rather than a California Cab.

Vintage Description: The winter of 1995 will long be remembered for two '100 year' floods. Spring continued cool and wet, which made it difficult to get into the vineyards for cultivation. Rain during bloom gave a lighter than normal set

Wine Advocate ReviewRated 94The 1995 Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley is performing far better after a year of bottle age. This dark ruby/purple-colored, seductive wine offers blazingly intense aromas of cigar box, smoky oak, and jammy black currants with a hint of Provencal herbs. Ripe and full-bodied, with low acidity, and a fleshy, succulent texture, it is a wine to drink over the next 14-15 years.
