Silver Oak Alexander Valley 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Wine 750ml
The 2016 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is ruby in color with a magenta rim. It has an enticing nose of cassis, blackberry, vanilla, sage and spearmint. Upon entry, this wine builds from potpourri and bramble to a bright pop of raspberry on the mid-palate. A juicy finish with chewy tannins and a medium length, it will provide drinking pleasure through 2042 with proper cellaring.
Blend: 94.6% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Merlo, 0.5% Petit Verdot, 0.5% Cabernet Franc, 0.4% Malbec

COMMENTARY: The 2016 Silver Oak Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon started as an elusive entity before rising to the occasion and displaying its charms. TASTING NOTES: This wine offers red and black currants and oak in its aromas and flavors. It stays focused and vibrant on the palate before finishing with a razor-sharp and bright fruit aftertaste. Pair it with a lightly-seasoned, grilled ribeye. (Tasted: June 30, 2020, San Francisco, CA)
