2015 SILVER OAK ALEXANDER VALLEY CABERNET SAUVIGNON
Canonized as one of the original Cult Cabernet Sauvignons in the New World, in part by their singular approach of using American oak barrels and additional bottle age that combine to project distinctive dark berries, dried herbs, and subtle dill notes. This sets Silver Oak apart as one of the most recognizable names and unique tastes in premium level Cabernet Sauvignon. With a proven track record that spans more than 4 decades of producing wines that are incredibly age-worthy, yet enjoyable upon release, Silver Oak Cabernet has carved out a category with their distinctive style, and it’s resonated deeply within their fan base. In a stellar vintage like 2015, many of those qualities that make Silver Oak so distinctive become even more enhanced.
Making a grand entrance, the remarkable 2015 vintage was the fourth straight drought influenced growing season and one that produced stunningly high quality fruit, but incredibly low yields. The wine was aged for 24 months in American oak before spending more than a year in the bottle… The 2015 Silver Oak Alexander Valley brims with intense dark berries, vanilla bean, subtle tobacco, crushed herbs, fresh dill and Kalamata olives… With allocations at the lowest that they’ve been in years, the only challenge to this vintage will be having enough available to satisfy demand…
