Silver Oak Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2001
Great color. Leather, smoke and chocolate. Great balance with huge tannins. Dark chocolate and dark cherry with long finish. Should probably have aged a bit longer.
Excellent CA cab. Silver Oak's Alexander Valley wines are 100% Cab Sauvignon which is not the case with their Napa blend. This makes the wine a bit more focused in the mouth. Although there is plenty of fruit and oak, neither are overbearing.
Very enjoyable. Perfectly made Cabernet from Cali. Well integrated flavors of cherrys & sweet red fruits. This wine is made in a traditional way, non-fruit bomb. Nice to see traditional wine comming from Cali.
Complete dust on the nose. Nose was very light for my liking. Smooth tannins, no noticeable oak, and lack of finish. I wished this to be more.

Wine Advocate ReviewRated 90The 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley (by the way, all of the Alexander Valley offerings are 100% Cabernet Sauvignon) has a big, sweet, oaky nose and a seductive panoply of spices from cedarwood to plum pudding and fruitcake notes. It is a sexy, sensual, broad, flavorful Cabernet lacking serious depth, but offering attractive fruit, plenty of ripeness, and a big wallop of American oak. Drink it over the next decade.
