Silver Oak Cristmas Cabernet
TASTING NOTES: Our Silver Oaks Christmas Cabernet Sauvignon is delivered in a holiday wine tote that is sure to bring holiday spirit. TOTE WILL VARY FROM TIME TO TIME.
Silver Oak Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is an elegant representation of Napa Valley Cabernet from a cool vintage. It presents an opaque garnet hue in the glass and reveals aromas of sandalwood and roasted meats. Flavors of vanilla, coffee beans and raspberries are buttressed by dusty tannins, firm acidity and a mouth-coating texture. Given proper cellaring, this wine should provide drinking pleasure through 2029.
Blend: 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14.5% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 4% Petit Verdot, 0.5% Malbec
Wilfred Wong of Wine.com - "Could this be the class of the vintage? I think I say this every year. When I approached the 2011 Silver Oak Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon this morning with the team, I was just a bit leery of the vintage. It has been so spotty for North Coast Cabernets, but this one is Silver Oak and lives up to the winery's pedigree. Yes, this is one of top wines of the vintage. Just dial up a thick rib-eye of beef and don't overcook the beast, this pairing will make your palate smile. Medium to deep ruby in color; active red fruit aroma, with a nice integration of American oak sweetness, a touch of savory herbs in the background; medium bodied, well-textured on the palate, layered and satisfying, pleasing sweet tannins; dry, medium acidity, well balanced; beautiful red and black fruit with an accent of dried herbs and sweet oak in the flavors; long, smooth finish, crisp and active in the aftertaste.
