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.

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

Had this wine over the Christmas Holiday 2007, and it was still going strong; however, if I had to put my money on it, I'd say that it is nearing the end of the line as far as it's top showing and will soon make the downward turn. Drink it over the next 12-18 months.

95 Points "This superb Cabernet producer has finally released its splendid 1991s. The compelling 1991 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley exhibits more classic cassis notes without the subtle herbaceousness of the Alexander Valley wine. It is a multi-layered, fabulously rich, intense wine with full body, a velvety texture, and oodles of fruit, glycerin, and soft tannin in the finish. Both wines are already delicious, and will age gracefully for 12-15 years." Wine Advocate, #101 Oct 1995, Robert Parker

This superb Cabernet producer has finally released its splendid 1991s. The 1991 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon boasts a dark ruby color, a rich, ostentatious, sweet vanillin, herb, and blackcurrant-scented nose, and gobs of rich, herb-tinged, juicy fruit, the opulent texture that Silver Oak routinely obtains. There is plenty of fat, glycerin, and alcohol in the long finish. Both wines are already delicious, and will age gracefully for 12-15 years.

The 1991s boast the most saturated color of the three most recent vintages from Silver Oak. The 1991 Bonny s Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is a superlative wine of extraordinary richness and character. The pronounced herbaceousness found in the 1992 and 1989 Bonny s Vineyard is not evident in 1991. There is a subtle note of herbaceousness but the wine is dominated by its jammy black-cherry and blackcurrant fruit and thick rich unctuously-textured flavors. A superb wine it is my personal
