Winemaker Notes

The 2013 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is dark ruby in color and entices you with a nose of raspberry, cassis and loose pipe tobacco. This full-bodied wine has an assertively silky structure and is notably spicy on the palate. Flavors of sage and blackberry mark the wine’s entry. The strong acidity in the mid-palate is followed by a lingering finish. Given proper cellaring, this wine will provide drinking pleasure through 2038.

The 2013 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is comprised of 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot.

Early Silver Oak wines—the winery's first vintage in 1972 produced a mere 1,100 cases—were often quite adventurous. Always exciting those vintages, over four decades ago were sometimes up and down, and far from the polished product that the wine is today. Over the past decade, these Napa Cabs have continued to garner attention, and have now become remarkably consistent. The 2013 Silver Oak Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, with the potential to be the winery's best ever, is seamless, rewarding, and a standout. At first sniff, this wine shows black fruit and cedar notes. With aeration, its aromatics blossom and springs forth with a delightful array of savory spices. Invite a few wine friends and pair this wine with a thick, rare slice of prime rib and enjoy the wine and food synergy. ((Tasted: January 17, 2018, San Francisco, CA USA)

Big and bold, with sweet and spicy fruit flavours and a dark blackberry and chocolate nose, this wine has a long tannic finish. It’s likable and modern in style, not as sweet as in the past, and with less new oak aging, a definite plus. The long slow growing season resulted in wines that are concentrated and structured. This seems a return to the old style under Justin Meyer.


90 points Wine Spectator

Shows off a distinctive dill and mocha edge, leading to a complex core of dark berry, licorice, loamy earth and cedar flavors. Ends with firm tannins and good length. Drink now through 2030.
