Silver Oak

Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 1995

Ron R
9.5

This was the winery back in 1998 which moved me to start researching wine in more detail. Relatively speaking, this is still so youthful. Back in the day when Silver Oak didn’t deploy mechanical harvesting at that time. This is just incredible. Still fruit-forward and opulent. Look at the color in the glass - very little visual bricking. Some tertiary notes of leather and herbs. This is a beauty to behold. Drink or hold this vintage. — 2 days ago

Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Very unique cab, maybe because I don’t get to try a lot of Sonoma/Alexander Valley cabs. This one is almost medium bodied, almost austere, plenty of red fruit. Very delicious. Closer to a good Chianti than a big cab. I am intrigued. — 13 hours ago

Beltane Ranch Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2018

First time for this varietal with these guys. Very nice job. Clean, crisp, varietally correct. Nice sense of balance for young wine. No hint of cat pee or grapefruit. Fruit leans toward lemon/lime, kiwi, green seedless grape. — 6 days ago

Dawn, delighted you enjoyed it. We get the majority of our white wine recos from @David L. He put us on to this. Follow him for whites. We are grasshoppers 😏

Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Prune chocolate smell, with some Maduro Dominican tobacco, blackberry, purple magenta color, blackberry and boysenberry taste, finish has a nice tannin backbone over the body (berry sweet) with mild acids that complete it with blackberry at end, I like it better than the balance suggests — 6 days ago

Has aged well and not too strong on the oak or tannins. Love these wines with some age on them. — 2 days ago

Ferrari-Carano

Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

I have been in love w/ Ferrari since I visited. High quality; rarely disappoints. Enough to like for both the oenophile and the beginner. You won’t mistake this for a bordeaux, but it’s lovely nonetheless. It’s like me. Muscular and full-bodied with just enough sophistication to be interesting. Shows cherry and toasted oak with a chocolate-infused finish. Tres solid. That’s French for Tres solid. — 12 days ago
