Bottle size: 750 ml
Natalie's Score: 92/100
Extremely tannic: needs serious cellar time. Decant 2 hours. A savoury and rich Californian Cabernet with aromas of cedar brush, dried herbs and cassis. There is a splash of Merlot in this wine. Vintages Wine Panel: The Silver Oak Alexander Valley Cabernet sources fruit from sites in the region's hillsides, benchlands and valley floor, specifically from the winery's Red Tail, Miraval and Geyserville Estate vineyards, and the wine is matured in casks produced in Silver Oak's own cooperage. This much-loved Cabernet reliably delivers ripe dark fruit with a smoky vanilla and coconut undertone provided by the American oak barrels. This is a wine that calls for steak, thick and certainly not overdone.
Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: prime rib, grilled pork, chicken.

Tasted @ California Wine Tour in Toronto 2017 - light, green, and tannic.
|Cabernet Sauvignon from Alexander Valley in the Sonoma County does have a splash of Merlot in it. Wine grapes for California Silver Oak Cellars (2012) are sourced from this region's hillsides, benchlands and valley floor, specifically from the Red Tail, Miraval and Geyserville Estate vineyards. The wine was matured in casks made in the cooperage at Silver Oak Cellars. This wine shows ripe, dark plum and blackberry fruit with a smoky, vanilla, coconut finish; tertiary notes from the American oak barrels. Tannins are ripe and the in is plushy and looking for a rare rib roast or steak. - Community Wine Reviews|
