Silver Oak Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 750ml
Silver Oak Alexander was founded to focus on Cabernet Sauvignon in 1972 by entrepreneur Raymond Twomey Duncan and winemaker Justin Meyer and makes two key wines.
Our 2015 Silver Oak Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is maroon in color with a garnet hue. It has an enticing nose of maraschino cherries, blackberry bramble, and brisket with notes of clove and star anise.
Mouthwatering with a juicy entry, this wine has a fruity mid-palate of currant with toasted vanilla and roasted brown sugar character from American oak barrels.
Structured tannins provide an elegant character with a long and expressive finish. Given proper cellaring, this wine will provide drinking pleasure through 2041.
Our 2015 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is composed of 95.3% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3.7% Merlot, 0.4% Petit Verdot, 0.3% Malbec and 0.3% Cabernet Franc.
Blended in early 2016, the wine was then aged for 24 months in 50% new and 50% once-used American oak barrels from our Missouri cooperage, The Oak. Early blending assures a balanced core and allows the components to achieve a seamless harmony during barrel aging.
After bottling in the spring of 2018, each bottle was aged an additional 15 months before being released in August of 2019.
Maroon in color with a garnet hue, this wine has an enticing nose of maraschino cherries, blackberry bramble, and brisket with notes of clove and star anise.
Aromas of vanilla, cassis, and sage fill the glass, revealing the influence of American oak barrel aging. On the palate, notes of raspberry are complemented with lingering acidity and a finish of dusty, silky tannins. Given proper cellaring, this wine will provide drinking pleasure through 2036.
