Silver Oak Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 1991
Wine AdvocateThis superb Cabernet producer has finally released its splendid 1991s. The compelling 1991 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley exhibits more classic cassis notes without the subtle herbaceousness of the Alexander Valley wine. It is a multi-layered, fabulously rich, intense wine with full body, a velvety texture, and oodles of fruit, glycerin, and soft tannin in the finish. Both wines are already delicious, and will age gracefully for 12-15 years.
Wine SpectatorA big, ripe, dark and intense style yet it manages to offer enough finesse and grace to keep in balance. Offers ripe cherry, currant and meaty edge on the finish, where the oak kicks in. Best after 1997. 8,800 cases made.
