Silver Oak Cabernet Napa 2009
Silver Oak 2009 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot which is blended prior to aging for 24 months in 100% new American oak and an additional 20 months in bottle. A dark ruby red in color, this elegant Napa red offers complex, layered aromas of cassis jam, mocha, violets and nutmeg on the nose. On the palate, concentrated berry flavor with a rich mouthfeel and long finish.
Editorial Reviews for Silver Oak Cabernet Napa
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!
External Reviews for Silver Oak Cabernet Napa
A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2008 Silver Oak Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 750ml
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.
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
