    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2001 Napa Valley is a blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. It was blended and barreled down in early 2002, in 100% new American Oak. We blend prior to barrel-aging to achieve a balance of fruit and tannin before they are influenced by oak. We age the wine in barrel for approximately 25 months to develop a harmony of the components, and then bottle-age for another 20 months, so it's ready to be enjoyed upon release.

    The 2001 Silver Oak Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a profound and powerful wine with great finesse. It has a deep, garnet color and a concentrated nose of cassis, chocolate, cloves, nutmeg and vanilla. This wine illustrates great depth and balance on the palate, with a sweet core of cassis fruit and a long finish bursting of berries and dark chocolate. It will continue to improve until 2027 given proper cellaring.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The Napa Cabernet Sauvignon is more limited in availability than the Alexander Valley, but there are now close to 33,000 cases being produced. The 2001 (31,430 cases of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot) offers a big, smoky, herb, black currant, tobacco, spice box, and barbecue spice-scented bouquet, and broad, medium to full-bodied, concentrated, sweet, jammy flavors with plenty of sexy, toasty American oak in the background.

    The Wine Advocate

    Aging very nicely, this is smooth, supple and complex, in great drinking space. Ripe currant, wild berry, mocha, dill, cedar and tobacco are full-bodied, gaining on the finish.
