Silver Oak Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 1989
We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.
Wine Advocate1989, the current vintage in release, is successful for Silver Oak. The 1989 Cabernet Sauvignon-Alexander Valley exhibits a spicy, vanillin, and black olive-scented nose, rich, velvety, medium to full-bodied flavors, low acidity, and a long, lush, jammy fruit-filled finish. It does not possess any of the hard tannin or hollowness that plague many 1989s. Drink it over the next 7-8 years.
Wine SpectatorSoft and fleshy with herb, currant, plum and earthy notes on the finish. Tannins are smooth and soft, but the flavors lose focus on the finish where it gets a bit earthy. A good wine considering the difficult vintage, but still one of Silver Oak's weakest ever. Drinkable now through 1997.
