Silver Oak Cellars Alexander Valley Napa Valley 1990

Winemaker's Notes:

The 1990 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon has a ruby-red color with a rich, complex nose of cassis, blackberries, violets, chocolate and baking spices. Fruit is echoed on the palate of this full-bodied wine, with a long finish with a hint of tannic grip. Enjoy now through 2013.

Silver Oak Cellars:
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...

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

The 1990 Bonny's Vineyard possesses a cigar box character, with considerable black cassis in its flavors. Dense and full-bodied, it exhibits exceptional extraction, plenty of glycerin, and a finish that lasts nearly a minute.

The 1990 Alexander Valley Cabernet offers aromas of fruitcake black-cherries cassis and spice. Dense rich opulent and supple this is a wine to drink during its first 10-12 years of life. This wine first reviewed in issue 89 is repeated to remind readers that the 1990 Silver Oak Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley and Napa cuvee as well as the 1989 Bonny s Vineyard Cabernet have finally been released.
