Slightly underwhelming. Fun to try and have, but bitter oak nuance took over, fruit was tired, and I didn't crave another glass.. Coravin'd my 2010 Erba Cabernet and for $20 cheaper, WAY better. A wine that I wouldn't really pay for, but I'm not gonna say no to a glass. I wish they'd try and get back to the old days and make a wine like they used to. Maybe they will one day.

Nice bouquet. This may need to age more. 2012 vintage consumed in May 2018.

Excellent, elegant, aromatic! Well balanced with a fruity bouquet. Smooth and supple gave me hints of cherries, vanilla, berries and of course Oak with a beautiful long finish.

Enjoyed this delicious 2012 Cab on Easter Sunday which was also my birthday. I have been saving this once since my first visit to Silver Oak in Napa, which also led to the first legit case of wine I ever bought.

Deep ruby hue. Rim variation and noticeable extraction. Nose offers black licorice, plum sauce, blackberry jam, with nutmeg, allspice, anise, leather, and cedar notes on the palate, opens with fruit, finishes with baking spices. Soft, melt-in-your-mouth tannins. Vintage 2012. ABV 14.4%.
