“Classic” 96 points
This new vintage of Silver Oak’s flagship “Napa” bottling is a serious intense and full bodied new release. A bouquet of inviting black currant, boysenberries and espresso introduce a balanced palate offering notes of cassis, dark berries, plus hints of smoky oak and tobacco on the finish. Enjoy tonight (recommend decanting) or feel free to cellar for 5 – 7 years.” – California Wine Advisors 

Winemaker Tasting Notes
“Our 2012 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon artfully combines the classic elegance of the old world and the ripe fruit of California. It displays an opaque garnet color with a bouquet driven by fruity aromas of blackberry liqueur. It also offers the savory components of sage and molasses. These complex aromatics are complemented by sandalwood and nutmeg characteristics indicative of American oak aging. This is a well-structured wine with a compact and rich mid-palate buttressed by silky tannins and generous acidity. Given proper cellaring, this wine will provide drinking pleasure through 2037.”
