“Year in year out, it's easy to see why Silver Oak remains one of the most popular Cabernet Sauvignons in the world’s top restaurants and at collectors’ home cellars. It's made in a more restrained style than many other Napa Cabernets today, while always over-delivering with plenty of berry and currant fruit, and that signature depth of new American oak, accompanied by tobacco and herbs that give it a hedonistic irresistibility. Dazzling, elegant and subtle, all at the same time. Should develop well for a decade or longer. A beautiful showing that you won’t want to miss.” - California Wine Advisors (1/19)

Vintage Notes: “The best 2014 Cabernets are pretty and graceful, with finesse and delineation... a very consistent vintage, there is an exuberance and flashiness to the 2014s… another superlative year with the majority of the wines revealing lovely harmony... Some of the greatest wines possess an incredible “mineral” character, contributing an exciting and somewhat unexpected layer. One notable feature of this vintage for the major proportion of the wines I’ve tasted is the whopping great tannic backbones, offering firm yet wonderfully ripe tannins.” - Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate (WA #233)
