Reviews and Ratings

Lori Kilmartin - WSET3 Sommelier rated this wine as 95/100 with the following review:

On the weekend we pulled out the Wagyu steaks from the freezer my hubby received on Father’s Day. Paired it with this 2014 Silver Oak I had in my cellar.

What an amazing pairing and meal. The steaks were almost buttery tender and extremely flavourful. Topped it with mushrooms sautéed in early harvest olive oil and a bit of balsamic vinegar. The sides were local fresh picked corn and cucumber and tomato from the garden.

Now that wine - one of the better Cabernets I’ve had in a while and a case where the price justified it! No aging on the colour yet, still bright and vivid. Aromas that jumped out of the glass; leather, smoke, vanilla, dark fruit. Every sniff seemed to impart something new! Soft mouthfeel with beautifully textured tannins and balanced acidity. Like the nose the flavours were also complex; juicy blackberry and plum, spice, butterscotch and vanilla - but not too heavily oaked. Full bodied and a long fruit finish. I think I need to splurge and buy more - this will evolve and age well for a while! Tasted August 15/2020

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
