Silver Oak Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Wine 1991

Winemaker's Notes:

The 1991 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon has a ruby-red color with a nose of blackberry, black plum, and asian spices. This wine is light to medium bodied with a medium length, tart finish. Enjoy now. Some bottle to bottle variation is apparent in this vintage.

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.

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 wine is a beautiful deep garnet color in the glass with nice clarity. The nose is a lovely combination of ripe wild berries, blackberry, marionberry and raspberry intermingled with some earthy notes of leather and a hint of baking spice. The taste is a burst of tart cherry at the outset that transitions nicely to some vanilla bean and dark chocolate midpalate. The finish seems to last until you take your next sip, as the smooth tannins undergird the fantastic acidity that abides in this long, voluptuous and exceedingly dry finish.

The wine is an inky black color at the center, leading to some bright ruby along the edges with nice clarity. The nose is just lovely, with notes of black licorice, tarragon, blueberry and some Asian spice. The taste is quite refined, with a some subdued flavors of cassis, blueberry and notes of espresso up front which transition to some elegant flavors of pipe tobacco, dusty limestone and white pepper midpalate. The finish is quite nice, with nicely structured and well integrated tannins supporting the long, lush, absolutely bone dry finish that just beckons another sip.

I tried the Napa and Alexander Cabs at a Silver Oak tasting, back to back. Both great, but I prefer the Alexander, personally. The nose on the Napa was amazing (orange peel, caramel) but it was less fruity and that somehow left the oak more exposed. It does have a great velvety texture.

This is a wonderfully smooth and refined wine. Lots going on with the nose with notes of cherry, dark fruits and cocoa. Velvety mouth feel and good balance. Not as large as I thought it would be and not quite as much fruit as I was expecting but very satisfying none the less.

Color was brick red. An aroma of subtle berry notes and flowers with some sought of burnt sugar. On the palate an abundance of cassis with nice vibrant cherry and way in the background some spice. Tannins gently making their presence known. A nice long finish.

Outstanding but it better be at the price. Not quite as good as the 2002 but still an excellent wine once it opens up.

Tasted out of barrel, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon should be a significant step up over the 2011. Full-bodied, beautifully textured, concentrated and rich, with high, yet sweet tannin, it offers up notions of cassis, cedar, cherry blossom and lead pencil shavings in its pure, sexy personality. Given the texture and concentration, it should drink reasonably well on release, yet evolve for two decades.

Another killer wine from the collaboration between Chris Figgins and Drew Bledsoe, there are 3,000 cases of the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon and it offers sensational notes of tobacco leaf, lead pencil shavings, graphite and sweet cassis on the nose. This is followed up by a full-bodied, concentrated, and still elegant 2012 that has lots of tannin, beautiful purity of fruit and a seamless texture that keep you coming back to the glass. Made from 91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Malbec and the rest Petit Verdot and Merlot, aged 20 months in 83% new French oak, give this rocking 2012 3–4 years in the cellar and enjoy it through 2032+.

The Best of Napa - Caymus and Silver Oak Cabernets - It doesn't get better than this. There is no second guessing about money well spent on these two cabernets. Vintage after vintage, these two reputable cabernet sauvignons deliver with quality and consistency. Best of all, save 10% off our retail price when bought together.
