Silver Oak Cellars was founded in 1972 by Raymond Duncan after visiting the Napa Valley in the late 1960s. The rugged beauty of the place and the fledgling wine industry led him to buy acres and acres of orchards, pastures and vineyards throughout the Napa and Alexander Valleys. He became partners with winemaker Justin Meyer and Silver Oak was born. Like a fine European house, Silver Oak further ages their wines in bottle at the winery after aging them in oak, in order to make the wines more ideal for drinking upon release. As far as food pairing, think great American steakhouse fare; or for a decadent treat, grill up hand packed Kobe beef burgers and top them with melted Truffle cheese from Italy.

Typically made of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon Silver Oak Alexander Valley is was first produced in 1972, and was the winery's first Cabernet Sauvignon, even before they made a Napa version. Seven years later, they harvested the grapes for their first Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon which is now produced as a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and other Bordeaux varietals.

Enticing aromas of blackberries, cherries, violets, cedar and licorice lead to a full-flavored upfront palate with a deep expression of classic Cabernet fruit especially dark cherry, and spices like white pepper and shaved nutmeg. The finish has plenty of tannin and yet presents an elegant taste. This 2016 is certainly a wine for the long haul so cellar through 2030 with confidence.

Concentrated and intense nose with dense blackcurrant fruit, elegant pencil shavings and herbal notes. Grippy tannins with cassis framed by vanilla oak.
