About Silver Oak 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley, Magnum 1.5L
Silver Oak is the standard bearer for Napa Valley Cab and has been for decades. Every vintage shows the pedigree and outstanding quality that is Silver Oak's signature.
After blending in early 2019, the 2018 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon was transferred to American oak barrels from their cooperage, The Oak, where it aged for 24 months. Blending before barrel aging—a signature of their winemaking style—allows blends to be based on the inherent qualities of their vineyard components before oak influence. It was then aged for an additional 24 months in bottle before being released in February of 2023. Vintage to vintage, the resulting Cabernets emerge integrated and ready to drink upon release.
The final blend is 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15.2% Merlot, 5.1% Cabernet Franc,3.2% Petit Verdot and 0.5% Malbec and it shows ruby in color with notes of strawberry, fresh carnation, black pepper and vanilla. is wine builds in strength and body across the mid-palate with a blackberry character on the finish and bright cherry return. With integrated tannins, it’s expressive yet luxurious with an even, balanced finish.
