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!

Deep garnet with a mix of ruby core. Slightly savory on the nose, a bit dirty too with earthy and woody notes. Dark berries weaved throughout. Similar on the palate with vanilla and black currants. Heavy tannins (7/10) while being smooth and rounded. Full bodied and long finish. Drink till 2030. (92+)

This is classic Cab. It should be for the price. Deep rich full, but just not as flavorful as a $75 bottle should be. I’ve got more to enjoy in the cellar and I’ll get another case when the time comes.

Great CA cab for the price. The Napa version is better but this one is a perfect no regrets wine for a Friday evening

bold red, great combination with coq au vin. Notes of black cherries, coffee and plum. So rich in the mouth but not overwhelming. Can’t wait for another taste.
