Top Notes For
Sipping Fine Wine

Blend of 78% Cab Sauv, 12% Merlot, 7% Cab Franc, 2% Petit Verdot & 1% Malbec, deep Ruby red, concentrated youthful aromas of ripe black fruit, subtle nutty spice & creamy chocolate. Aged 24 months, 85% new & 15% 1-year used American oak. On the palate fresh fruit flavors of sweet plum, black cherry & dried blackberries, with bits of oak & cacao trying to peek through. Tannins are present, but just a tad persistent, reflecting its youth. Long & elegant finish with vanilla & slight mineral tang. Drinks well now, continue to develop over the next 15-20 years, why wait it’s perfect now! Outstanding! Tasting Sample!

Powerful and bold. Classified as a Cab varietal, it is 78% Cabernet , 11.6% Merlot and 6.7 Cab Franc, the rest is Petite Verdot and Malbec . It is definitely a Napa left bank style Bordeaux. Tobacco and cassis are evident. Long finish and will even be better in a few years.

Okay!!!!! Now were talking. Clearwater beach vacation, on the patio, watching the sunset, and having a glass of Silver Oak 2014 cabernet sauvignon. The perfect cab!!!! Blackberry and blueberry fruit on the beginning. Then comes the chocolate and spice and everything nice. The oak is HUGE!!!!! The finish is very very dry and there is absolutely no tartness anywhere!!!!!!!! Anyone who rates this less than ten has had some mighty fine wine!

Good Cab. A little sharp but still very well rounded.
