A lovely cab that restores some faith in Cal Cabs. Made with real finesse, so it doesn't knock you over the head. Deep, dark garnet in color, with cassis, berry, and cedar aromas. On the palate this wine was surprisingly silky and easy to drink, with fully integrated tannins and a smooth and long finish of fruit and spice. Drinking really well now, so those lucky to have a bottle or two can probably open it at the holidays if they want!

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.

The 2001 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignons reveals a saturated ruby/purple color in addition to a lusty, sweet perfume of cassis, spice box, licorice, and lavender. The wine is ripe and medium to full-bodied, with low acidity, abundant glycerin, w... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.

Silver Oak is a deep, rich Cabernet Sauvignon with a garnet color and a concentrated nose of cocoa, cassis syrup, coffee, and black licorice. It is extremely full-bodied on the palate and has an incredibly long finish of black licorice and vanilla. Enjoy!

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2001 Alexander Valley has a medium ruby-red color and a nose of blackberry jam, violets, chocolate and nutmeg. It has a rich attack, a full mid-palate and an explosion of fruit in the finish. Tannins are still evolving, so this wine will continue to improve through 2026.
