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 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!

Full body, rich texture and full mouth of dark fruit and tobacco. Well balanced with a long finish. A real crowd pleaser.

The nose displays aromas of bright Bing cherry and fresh plum, backed by tobacco leaves, chocolate and hints of wild sage. This elegant Silver Oak release presents good acidity, firm tannins and ample, though not overwhelming, oak for support. Drink ... David Derby.

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.

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.
