Many will rate the Napa Valley Silver Oak higher than Alexander Valley. For those that like an earthier Cabernet Savignon, whose nose makes you feel like you are right there in the vineyard, you cannot find a better wine than Silver Oak. It cellars well and the 1997 is spectacular....a good year the world over. I keep a fair amount in the cellar waiting for special occasions. Silver Oak has never let me down.

My wife and I opened a bottle of '97 Alexander valley and compared it with a '97 Kenwood Artist Seires and both were spectacular. This was our kick off to Spring treat! The Silver Oak was well balanced, deep purple and very vibrant in colour and wonderful nose of cherry and other fruits. Tastes of cherry, chickory, leather, mild spice and plenty more tanin to go the full stretch to 2022. This was well worth cellaring for the last 10 years and so satisfying... enjoy.

I love any wine from this area. The fog that rolls in makes these wines so good. So good.

Wine Tasting NotesThe 1997 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a wine of great intensity and balance. It has a garnet color and displays a nose of cassis, violets, nutmeg and roasting coffee. This wine is rich and extracted with a long, rich, fruity finish. Properly cellared, this Cabernet will continue to improve through 2022.

...Classic California cabernet aromas of blackcurrant, tar and menthol. Began slightly lean and herbaceous but seemed to put on weight and gain in texture as it opened in the glass. Firm acids are a bit tart but not quite spiky. Finishes firmly tanni... Stephen Tanzers IWC.

... dense purple color with boisterous, sweet, spicy, new oak, licorice, and olive notes...In the mouth, it reveals medium body, sweet jammy cherry fruit, and a soft finish...
