Silver Oak Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2002
Silver Oak has consistently produced some of the most sought-after, highly regarded Cabernet Sauvignons in the world. Since the early 1970's, their goal has been to craft full-flavored Cabernets with velvety soft textures. The zealous devotion of their customers is a testament to their success. True to the Silver Oak style, the 2002 is an opulent wine with darkchocolate, berry liqueur and black plum flavors and aromas.... View More
Not surprisingly, my favorite Napa bottling is the 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon, a blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, and the rest Cabernet Franc and a dollop of Petit Verdot. Aromas of olive-tinged, creme de cassis intermixed with sweet vanillin and smoky oak lead to a sweet, chunky, ripe, cedary wine with an attractive texture, an expansive, fruit-forward style, and a spicy finish. It should drink well for 10-12 years.
