Silver Oak Alexander Valley California 1998

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes The 1998 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a medium ruby color. It has a nose of rose petals, blackberry and allspice. This wine is elegant on the palate and bursting with blackberry fruit and has an extremely long finish. Properly cellared, this Cabernet will continue to improve through 2020.

Creamy dill and lavender aromas lead to similar flavors, wrapped around a core of rich, earthy currant, cedar, anise and sage. Complex and concentrated, though it turns tannic and dry on the finish. Drink now through 2006. 18,000 cases made. (JL) Wine Spectator. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 1998 Silver Oak Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 750ml

Full red-ruby, with a hint of amber. Riper on the nose than the Alexander, with currant, loam and mocha aromas complicated by herbs and nutty oak. Offers more texture and sweetness to buffer its acidity, with bitter cherry and currant flavors in the ... Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Fading but still complex with vibrant anise smoked herb dried currant and sage notes. Full-bodied with dry gritty tannins this is a bit hollow midpalate.--1998 California Cabernet retrospective. Drink now. 50 000 cases made. -JL Wine Spectator.

The 1998 Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley reveals complex aromatics of spice box fruit cake new oak and dried herbs. Its frontal attack offers plenty of black currant fruit licorice olives and Provencal herbs. Although it does not possess the size of previous vintages of the nineties it is built along the lines of a good Bordeaux. Its deficiency is its short finish... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
