1998 Silver Oak Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1002287 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 1998 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa (93% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Cabernet Franc, and 3% Petit Verdot) is a narrowly constructed, firmer, less generous offering than previous vintages of the nineties. The attractive dark ruby/purple color is accompanied by sweet aromas of cassis, smoked herbs, oak, and earth. Gritty tannin is noticeable in the finish. (RP) Inner quote mark (8/2002)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Full red-ruby, with a hint of amber. Riper on the nose than the Alexander, with currant, loam and mocha aromas complicated by herbs and nutty oak. Offers more texture and sweetness to buffer its acidity, with bitter cherry and currant flavors in the middle and on the aftertaste. Here the tannins are broader, but the lingering finish is still a bit dry and green. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2002)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Shows Silver Oak's signature cedar-dill oak profile. Dry, dusty sage, cedar, cigar box and currant flavors are lean yet appealing, with a minerally edge. Full-bodied yet simpler midpalate. (JL, Web Only-2009) Inner quote mark

K&L Notes

Silver Oak library notes: "The 1998 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon has a dark ruby color. It has a nose of blackberry, rose petals and cumin. This wine is elegant on the palate and has an extremely long finish. This Cabernet will continue to improve through 2018 given proper cellaring. Composition: 93% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petit Verdot."
