Sauvignon, 12.6% Merlot, 3.6% Cabernet Franc, 2.4% Petit Verdot, 0.4% Malbec
The 2015 Napa Valley
Cabernet Sauvignon has a deep, rich red color with a purple rim. A robust wine
with an assertive and alluring attack, it has notes of strawberry, cigar and
tea leaves with a touch of black pepper and clove. A mouthwatering mid-palate
of raspberry is followed by an expressive and bright finish. With lush and
silky tannins, this age worthy wine will show beautifully through 2038 given
proper cellaring conditions.

Silver Oak Cellars is one of the most tried-and-true Cabernet Sauvignon
producers in California. The 2015 Napa Valley gushes forward with superb
richness and persistence. TASTING NOTES: This wine is packed with ripe fruit
and pleasingly accented with oak. Enjoy its aromatic aromas and flavors of ripe
fruit, flowers, and oak with a grilled ribeye topped with minced shallots.

singed juniper, black tea and sassafras notes lead the way, with mulled
blackberry, plum and black currant fruit following along. The fine-grained
finish laces everything up with mouthwatering acidity and subtle grip. Drink
now through 2031.
