Needs about 40min to an hour to fully open up. Starts off Bordeaux-ish then finishes up like a Napa cab.

Deep, opulent, sticky black berry fruit, cedar, damson and full on oregano herbs. Quite nicely integrated in the mouth, deep black fruit, chocolate style tannin, plenty of sweetness with out too much oak. A gentle giant, alc kicks a bit on the back end

Garnet color with black cherry, cassis, tobacco, and a bit of dried herb aromas. On the palate, it's medium-bodied with a soft texture, fine-grained tannis and good acidity with black cherry, cassis, and a bit of plum and spice flavors. Lingering sweet finish Blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc & 3% Petit Verdot. Aged in 100% New American Oak Barrels for 24 Months, then 20 Months in Bottle. Very good now, but would benefit from further cellaring

Big boy! Rich and opulent, lots of currant, cassis, a little sweet soil and a big mouthfeel.

Excellent! Probably one of the best wines I have ever tasted. Amazing bouquet, and super smooth. Also the most expensive wine I've tasted!

We brought some cellared wine on our recent trip and the silver oak came out early on. This vintage seams to have gone away a little. Still lovely but a little flat on the pallet. Still fruit as expected and a silky mouth feel. If you've got 94, drink it soon.

Delicious - the epitome of a classic Napa Cabernet - this wine for starters had such soft silky tannins you swear they didn't exist. The acid was high the finish was long and the abundance of aromas and flavors were so delightful I wish their was more. Cedar, oak, leather, tobacco, leading to cassis and rich black berry which is the opposite of how you would expect it to be. None the less a legendary wine with exemplified qualities. Well done @silveroakcellars
