    Winemaker's Notes:

    This 2008 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a complex and layered expression of California Cabernet. The wine has a dark garnet color and is bursting with fruit even as it is poured. It has a nose of cassis, violets, licorice, allspice and roasting coffee. On the palate, it has an extraordinarily rich attack, a satin texture and an exuberant expression of fruit on the mid-palate that comes from picking grapes at the peak of their ripeness. The wine finishes with notions of savory umami, and fruit with a medium tannic grip. Given proper cellaring, this wine should give drinking pleasure through 2032.

    Blend: 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot

    Critical Acclaim:

    It's easy to see why Silver Oak remains so popular with the restaurant crowd. It's made in a more restrained style than many other Napa Cabs. There's plenty of berry and currant fruit as well as oak, but it's accompanied by tobacco and herbs that give the wine an earthiness. What the wine lacks in dazzle it more than makes up for in elegance and subtlety. Cellar Selection.

    Have not had this vintage but would suggest that it be aged substantially based on my experience with the 2001 Napa Valley Silver Oak. Bought 3 bottles and was thoroughly unimpressed and depressed after sampling the first shortly after purchasing. After reading reviews and tasting notes, we waited 10 years to try the second bottle...vastly better: fuller and deeper flavor. If you don't want to wait, I'd suggest the Alexander Valley Silver Oak. It also improves with aging but it is much better young than the Napa Valley, in my opinion at least.
