    Winemaker's Notes:

    Number 28 on the Wine.com 100 of 2007!

    The Silver Oak Cellars 2003 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is an elegant, highly expressive wine that displays great complexity due to the multifaceted climatic conditions of the harvest season. The wine is dark ruby with a purple to red edge. It displays bright aromas of black cherry, dark chocolate, black tea, allspice and ginger. In the mouth, it has a full-bodied attack, a round, balanced mid-palate redolent of cherry preserves, brown sugar and caramel and an extremely long finish of savory ripe fruit. Properly cellared, it should give drinking pleasure until 2026.

    Our 2003 Alexander Valley, a blend of wine from several different vineyards, is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. We blended the vineyard lots in early 2004 and transferred the wine to 50% new and 50% once-used American oak barrels for aging. Blending prior to barreling allows us to achieve a balance of the wine's natural elements, such as fruit and tannin, before they are influenced by oak. The wine is then aged in barrel for approximately 25 months and another 15 months in bottle to harmonize its components before release.

    I shared a bottle of the Silver Oak A.V. Cab with a buddy of mine when my wife and I went up to his restaurant in Vermont. We both got Filet and it was the PERFECT accompanyment. The nice thing about this wine is the cherry taste right in the middle. Wow, a little steep in price because you are buying the name as well, but It is still justifiable!

    Finally, a 2003 Cabernet that I'll buy time and time again. Very well balanced, not too tannic
