About Timeless by Silver Oak 2017 Red, Napa Valley
Timeless Napa Valley is a tribute to Silver Oak co-founder Ray Duncan. Inspired by the song "Timeless"—a gift for Ray's 85th birthday in 2015 written by his youngest son, David—Timeless Napa Valley is a single vineyard proprietary red blend from their Soda Canyon Ranch estate and is crafted by Silver Oak winemaker Nate Weis.
The first vintage of Timeless Napa Valley is a harmonious and integrated wine that deftly balances high acidity and supple fruit to create ageworthy structure and character. Once fermented and blended, the 2017 vintage rested in French oak barrels for 16 months.
The Robb Repoert wrote "The inaugural 2017 Timeless Napa Valley, is in fact a complex, seamless beauty, unfolding endlessly with high-toned aromas of lavender, tobacco, forest, sage, anise, exotic spice, pepper and espresso under dusty red berries...It has that hallmark of a great wine: a sense of the myriad characteristics a place conferred in a moment of time while maintaining a structure that will let the wine age for many years."
