This is a good bottle of wine. It is not very good or excellent. It is not worth the $70. I would say this is a $20 bottle of wine. Flavors are hidden and just a little bit of tannin. For $70 you would be able to get much better wine. It is a bit one dimensional. I am 87 point on this effort. Happy drinking!

Because Silver Oak only produces Cabernet Sauvignon from California's two best Cabernet microclimates, their wines are consistently outstanding and complex, brimming with ripe cassis flavors, carefully seasoned with toasty new oak. This Alexander Valley bottling is full-bodied and ultra-ripe. Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored it 92 points and said "Not clear if this is a long-term ager, but you definitely want to give it a good decanting of at least four hours. You should even pour the glasses and let them stand for an hour. The interaction with oxygen with open the wine up and allow it to express its herbal, soft deliciousness. Airing also emphasizes the cherry and red currant fruit, letting the palate enjoy this complex, tannic wine at its best." Limited.

This Silver Oak bottling is produced from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from several different vineyard sites. It is an elegant, highly expressive wine that exhibits notes of nutmeg, cassis, black plum, and sandalwood, followed by an extremely long finish of savory ripe fruit. Ever since Silver Oak was founded in the early '70s, the winery has dedicated itself entirely to Cabernet Sauvignon.

Bright Bing cherry and fresh plum aroma with a wild sage background and notes of tobacco and chocolate. This is a more elegant Silver Oak release with good acidity, firm tannins and ample though not overwhelming oak for support. Drink now with a hear... David Derby.

The 2006 is a beautiful fruit-forward, full-bodied wine that captures the distinct characteristics of Alexander Valley. Combines full body and richness with moderate alcoho l, dark ruby/purple color, a wonderfully sweet nose of espresso roast, fudge, blackberry, and cassis with a nutmeg and dark chocolate.

On the palate, it has a rich, mouth-coating attack, great expression of fruit, a full-body and beautifully integrated tannins that lead to a long, spicy finish.

Notes: Our 2006 Alexander Valley, a blend of wine from several different vineyards, is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. We blended the vineyard lots in early 2007 and transferred the wine to 50% new and 50% once-used American oak barrels for aging. Blending prior to barreling allows us to achieve a balance of the wine’s natural elements, such as fruit and tannin, before they are influenced by oak. The wine was then aged in barrel for approximately 25 months and another 15 months in bottle to harmonize its components before release.
