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

While I throughly believe that the Silver Oak Alexander Valley is very overrated, this is one of the best wines I have ever had. Blueberry pie on the nose that I would rather smell than eat any dessert. Beautiful wine.

Definitely one of the best wines I've had, and in my opinion, as good as the 2001.

Much better than the 2000. Not my style but: Big, jammy, cherries that turn into plums, oaky,a moment of magic,silky, velvet, and sufficient finish. Decant and drink now... while the fruit is fresh.

Excellent, well structured cab, but Silver Oak cabs in general are made to taste better after lying down for years. Taste too early and the tannins ruin the velvety, full-mouth-feel I love so much with other expensive cabs, such as high-quality Stags Leap appelation cabs.

Wine Tasting NotesThe 2003 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a complex and concentrated wine that deftly balances intensity and finesse. The wine has a dark garnet color with a deep purple edge, and displays aromas of blackberry jam, dark chocolate, rose petal, black pepper and cedar. In the mouth, the attack is quite rich, expressing notes of brown sugar and nutmeg, and the flavors proceed seamlessly to a long finish of fruit and ripe tannins. Properly cellared, this wine should give drinking pleasure until 2027.

RP: 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. Drink it over the next 7-8 years.

Full-bodied with chewy cedar, dried currant, sage and herbal notes.This wine gains complexity despite the chewy tannins and may reward short-term cellaring.Drink now through 2015.

Silver Oak is the standard bearer for Napa Valley Cab. Because Silver Oak only produces Cabernet Sauvignon from California's two best Cabernet microclimates, their wines are consistently outstanding and complex, brimming with ripe cassis flavors, carefully seasoned with toasty new oak. This Napa Valley bottling is their most desirable wine. Don't miss the chance to enjoy a true Napa Valley icon. ON SALE. Wine Advocate Vintage Rating: 92 <small>This item excluded from any other offers beyond the 15% case discount. <small>not sponsored by or affiliated with The Wine Spectator or The Wine Advocate

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. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2003 Silver Oak Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 750ml
