Silver Oak 2013 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 2013 vintage in Alexander Valley is a blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc and 1% Malbec. Blended in early 2014, the wine was then aged for 24 months in 50% new and 50% once-used American oak barrels from our Missouri cooperage, The Oak. Early blending assures a balanced core and allows the components to achieve a seamless harmony during barrel aging. After bottling in the spring of 2016, each bottled was aged an additional 15 months before being released in August of 2017. No ratings yet but we expect nothing but raves. This is a limited allocation so please don't miss your chance to grab this iconic Cab from a historic vintage.
