About Our Ratings

Silver Oak 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon, Alexander Valley
Because Silver Oak only produces Cabernet Sauvignon from California's two best Cabernet microclimates, their wines are consistently outstanding and complex, brimming with ripe cassis flavors, carefully seasoned with toasty new oak. Because of their long relationships with growers they are able to source the best possible fruit from prime vineyards throughout Alexander Valley. This wine, from the outstanding 2012 vintage in Alexander Valley is a blend of 98% Cabernet Sauvignon and just 2% Merlot. It was blended in early 2013 and aged for 24 months in 48% new and 52% once-used American oak barrels from their own cooperage, The Oak, in Higbee, Missouri. Early blending assures a balanced core and allows the components to achieve a seamless harmony during barrel aging. After bottling in the spring of 2015, the wine was aged an additional 15 months in bottle before this release coming up in August of 2016. It has a lovely garnet color and opens with aromas of black currant, orange zest and raspberry. These aromas are framed by nuanced notes of vanilla, marshmallow and cocoa, eliciting an effect reminiscent of chocolate-covered berries. The attack is rich and gives way to a mid-palate with breadth and depth, supported with refreshing acidity and integrated, dusty tannins. This wine has power with an unusual vitality and structural balance. Given proper cellar conditions, this wine will provide drinking pleasure through 2034. Grab it Now!!
