Silver Oak 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
Silver Oak is the standard bearer for Napa Valley Cab and has been for decades. For this, their Napa Valley bottling they source grapes from throughout the Valley. The 2011 vintage was the second in a pair of late ripening vintages for the Napa Valley. The application of precision farming methods and the use of berry sensory techniques in addition to traditional maturity analyses were critical to success of this Silver Oak Napa Cabernet in a challenging season. A blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14.5% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 4% Petit Verdot, 0.5% Malbec, Silver Oak takes two unique steps in their wine making process that make this wine different and exceptional every vintage. First, they blend the different vineyard lots before the wine goes into barrels for aging. This lets the fruit expression stand out with the natural elements coming into balance before the influence of oak. Then the wine is transferred to 100% new American oak barrels for 24 months of aging. The second unique step they take is after bottling they age the wine in bottle for a full 20 months allowing the flavors to fully integrate and the tannins to soften so upon release it's already nicely developed and you can clearly see the path it will take to maturity. This 2011 shows immense complexity and bold flavors. Vanilla, coffee beans and blackberries are buttressed by dusty tannins, firm acidity and a mouth-coating texture. Given proper cellaring, this wine should provide drinking pleasure for many years to come.
