Silver Oak Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2007
The 2007 Silver Oak Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a profound,fruit-driven wine from a great California vintage. It has a dark ruby color with a purple edge and an inviting nose of ripe black plum, blackberry, baking spices and soy sauce. On the palate, the wine is rich and full, reminiscent of the flavors of a berry cobbler. It has a long, fruity finish with fine grained tannins, and is a testament to exquisite ripeness at moderate alcohol. With proper cellaring, this wine should give drinking pleasure through 2031.
RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
Much improved over the '06 but still sadly over priced. Great structure and the tannins are riper in this vintage. Notes of currants and chocolate throughout. Still, there are much better Cabs out there for $60+ than this mass produced name.
One of my favorites. Always reliable and full-bodied Cabernet, and reasonably priced.
Wow! Taste and enjoy, you won't be disappointed.
Still young, this Silver Oak will mellow over time. Strong flavors of black fruit and cedar, medium tannins and long finish. I'd suggest 2014 as the best time to pop one of these babies.

Deep red, almost opaque, core with lighter hues towards the rim. The nose opens with cherry, fig and plum, supported by oak and vanilla with a hint of flowers. On the palate, the wine is medium to full bodied and showcases flavors of black fruit, m... Jeff Loo.

The 1998 Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley is light and overtly herbaceous. The wine is certainly soft and fleshy with good fruit, and is undoubtedly very much in the style of the Alexander Valley, but it does not have much weight, density, or thickness. This wine will be ready to drink upon release and is probably best consumed during its first 8ndash;10 years of life.
The 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley exhibits a deep, saturated ruby/purple color. The wine possesses aromas of sweet toasty oak, earth, spice box, cherries, and currants. It is a soft effort for this vintage. The wine has medium body, and good fruit and flavor. Drink it over the next 10ndash;12 years.
Well-oaked and smooth-textured, with mocha and dill leading to a mix of dried berry, currant, anise and sage. Gains complexity and depth on the finish, where the tannins are dry and earthy. Slightly better than previously reviewed. Drinl now through 2007.
A look and a taste of this wine and you know yoursquo;re in the realm of the major leaguers. Itrsquo;s dramatically black-purple, and both aromas and flavors are packed with cassis and fine new oak, lavishly applied. Though rich indeed, itrsquo;s quite drinkable because tannins are soft. The wine was made in a fashion clearly meant to please the consumer, and I suspect to be a critic-pleaser as well.
The 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley touts an intense olive, smoky, toasty nose intermixed with kirsch liqueur and currant fruit. The wine is sweet, dense, with an opaque ruby/purple color, expansive fat mid-palate, and long finish.
