Silver Oak

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 1997

A standout to me based on the youthfulness of this bottle shared by @Mike R, thank you. Underbrush and mint on the nose. While still maintaining a bright red color that is still intact. Gave me devious reminders of a Penfolds Grange. Mint, iron and blast of minerals prevailed on the palate. Supremely balanced as some of the pre 97’s in the flight gained tannins. — 2 days ago

Love it @Shawn R ! The low toast signature of our American oak barrels (we make them at our cooperage in Missouri) preserves that freshness, and as it integrates at 20+ years, finds balance with the more youthful vanilla component. It is usually more prevalent in the Alexander Valley (since we use less new oak), but the best vintages of Napa can show it too with enough time. Cheers! 🍷

Silver Thread

Dry Riesling 2017

Pale color. Fresh cut lawn with floral notes on the nose. Whispers of peach pit fruit, followed by graphite with a acidic lime zest finish. This wine was better early in the bottle and when it was cooler. (Smoked salmon dip, smoked oysters, smoked pork loin, smoked chicken, with vegetable crudités- on the lanai) — 5 days ago

Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Has the gamey nose of goat emmentaler cheese soaked in cherries. Young and ageable. Purchase to cellar if you enjoy the name. Classically oaked California Cab. — 4 days ago

Oak Knoll District Chardonnay 2017

Decent legs, 6/10. Smells like honeysuckle and citrus. A good example of a California Chardonnay. A small bite, and finish isn't very long lasting. Well balanced and lightly buttery. Good! — 5 days ago

Oak Knoll District Pinot Noir 2016

Honey, raspberry, and French toast on the nose. Licorice, lightly tainted with blackberries, acidity that coats the your tonsils. Woody and lightly smoked to perfection. Bring me back to Mike’s amazing tour. You go Mike! — 10 days ago

Harmony Chardonnay 2015

Delightful and not too oaky. Nice malolactic fermentation, butter, traveled well from Napa and could have hung around for another couple of years. — 18 days ago
