Silver Oak Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Wine 1995

Winemaker's Notes:

The 1995 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon has a dark ruby-red to garnet color. It has an intense nose of cassis, blackberry, violets, licorice and roasting coffee. This wine has a mouth coating body and a long medium tannic finish. It will continue to improve through 2020 with proper cellaring.

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

A touch of dill and coconut from oak give this a unique aromatic and flavor profile and there s plenty of rich intense spicy currant plum and blackberry fruit to stand up to the wood. Hints of anise and cherry flow through on the finish keeping the fruit in the forefront.--1995 California Cabernet retrospective. Drink now through 2012. 41 300 cases made. -JL Wine Spectator.

A blend of 96% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Cabernet Franc, the 1995 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa has turned out even better than the 1994. It possesses a more saturated ruby/purple color, as well as a more flamboyant and exotic bouquet. Moreoever, it seems

The 1995s look to be as impressive as the 1994s and 1992s. The superb 1995 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon reveals huge richness, massive body, and layers of unctuously-textured, thick, jammy, blackcurrant fruit. It should be a knock-out Cabernet Sauv...

The 1995 Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley is performing far better after a year of bottle age. This dark ruby/purple-colored seductive wine offers blazingly intense aromas of cigar box smoky oak and jammy black currants with a hint of Provencal herbs. Ripe and full-bodied with low acidity and a fleshy succulent texture it is a wine to drink over the next 14-15 years. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Wine Advocate ReviewRated 95A blend of 96% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Cabernet Franc, the 1995 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa has turned out even better than the 1994. It possesses a more saturated ruby/purple color, as well as a more flamboyant and exotic bouquet. Moreoever, it seems less evolved. Full-bodied and pure, with layer upon layer of concentrated black fruits, smoke, cedar, and toast, it should drink well for 16-17 years.
