2009 Silver Oak Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Shows off a spice, dill and cedary oak quality, met by ripe currant, smoke, wild berry and cigar box notes. Ends with firm, ripe tannins that give the flavors grip.
The latest vintage of one of America's most beloved Cabs, Silver Oak's 2009 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon officially releases on Saturday, February 1, 2014. The winery's tasting note: "Our 2009 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a ripe, rich, layered, yet elegant wine. It has a dark, ruby color and a complex nose of cassis jam, mocha, violets and nutmeg. On the palate, the wine has a delectable berry-laden entry and a rich, mouth-coating mid-palate. The tannins are beautifully integrated and the wine has a long, satiny finish. Given proper cellaring, this wine should give drinking pleasure through 2032."
