Food Pairings for Silver Oak Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
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.
External Reviews for Silver Oak Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
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.
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.
Like a savory claret pumped up on performance-enhancing California climate, this is nuanced and relatively austere for all its bold, plummy fruit. The supple richness of tannins lends it textural finesse, the quality of Silver Oak that may be most respons
Good deep red-ruby. Dark berries, black cherry and licorice on the nose, with a less exaggerated oak element despite the fact that this was aged in 95% new American barrels. Not particularly sweet, but the mid-palate offers better grip and lift than the 2004, with laid-back flavors of currant, plum and tobacco leaf. Finishes with substantial, slightly dry tannins and good persistence. Incidentally, the production of this wine was increased in the early part of this decade and is now in the 75,000 case range.
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. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2007 Silver Oak Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley 1500ml
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 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.
