Recently grabbed another ‘13, Silver Oak Alexander Valley Cab, produced at their Geyserville estate in Sonoma. Blend of 95% Cab Sauv, 2% Merlot, 2% Cab Franc & 1% Malbec. Aromas of ripe berry fruits, sweet herbs and subtle spice wrapped in a beautiful vibrant Ruby color. On the palate blackberry and cherry flavors with vanilla and candied spice notes sitting in soft oak. Fine smooth tannins, great balance on lingering finish ending with a mineral tang. Got softer but leave in cellar, drink if U R tempted!

Excellent integration thus far. ‘02s will last easily in to the third decade.

It’s been years since I had Silver Oak anything. This was pretty darned good. Will last for a long time...probably not going to get better though.

Here we are again, 2 years later from the first time I rated it... subtle plum and black cherry, black coffee, leather, violets and pink peppercorns. Little to none of the pyrazines I noticed before. Pretty soft and integrated tannins. Enjoyable with New York strip, mushroom risotto and roast broccoli.
