Silver Oak Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is comprised of 94.6% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4.0% Merlot, 0.5% Petit Verdot, 0.5% Cabernet Franc and 0.4% Malbec. In early 2017, the final blend was transferred to American oak barrels. It is aged for 24 months. Half of the barrels for the Alexander Valley vintage were new, providing a subtle, layered expression of bay leaf, coconut, and vanilla to the wines.Blending before barrel aging, a signature of winemaking style, allows blends to be based on the inherent qualities of their vineyard components before oak influence. Vintage to vintage, the resulting Cabernets emerge integrated and ready to drink upon release.
Color: It is deep ruby in color with a touch of magenta at the edge.
Aroma: Cassis, blackberry, vanilla, sage, and spearmint.
Palate: When you taste it, you'll note that potpourri and bramble give way to a burst of vibrant raspberry in the middle.
