Silver Oak Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 1995
Wine AdvocateA blend of 96% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Cabernet Franc, the 1995 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa has turned out even better than the 1994. It possesses a more saturated ruby/purple color, as well as a more flamboyant and exotic bouquet. Moreoever, it seems less evolved. Full-bodied and pure, with layer upon layer of concentrated black fruits, smoke, cedar, and toast, it should drink well for 16-17 years.
Wine SpectatorA bit simple, with a band of cedar, currant and fresh earth, but it lacks the richness, depth and dimension of the best wines.--1995 California Cabernet retrospective. Drink now. 10,400 cases made.
