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

Light and spicy with fresh oak aromas over red raspberry and cherry fruit, not yet complex and fairly subdued. A touch loosely knit in the mouth with integrated acidity and soft, plush tannins underpinning a lovely, open core of red fruit. The oak is well-integrated, serving as a foundation for the fruit and building in intensity and complexity on the palate. The back end shows a touch of meatiness leading to a fresh, slightly herbal and nicely taut finish. Restrained and easy going, this is ready to drink today, though it might gain some complexity over the next 2-5 years. 91pts

Great wine. Soft and refined. Opened really well after about 30 minutes. Soft hints of oak and earth. Cheers!

A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2008 Silver Oak Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 750ml

Vintage: 2003 06/20/2014

The 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa (78% Cabernet Sauvignon 13% Merlot 7% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot) possesses a sweet jammy bouquet of black currants intermixed with barbecue smoke tobacco espresso and herbs. It offers a sexy fleshy entry but falls off at the back of the palate. Although heady with plenty of superficial up-front fruit there is not much substance or follow through on the palate. Drink it over the next 7-8 years. (Release date 2/08) Tel. (800) 273-8809; Fax (707

Complex with a mix of creamy vanilla-tinged oak dried currant herb pencil lead and sage notes that are tight and tannic ending with a mineral and pebble aftertaste. Well-balanced. Drink now through 2014. 33 400 cases made. -JL Wine Spectator.
