2002 Silver Oak Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1023958 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The Alexander Valley cuvee is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in new oak. The 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley offers abundant quantities of spice, vanillin, cedar, herbs, and smoke, soft, round, creamy-textured flavors, good black cherry and currant notes, and a spicy, medium-bodied, easy-going personality. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2005)

Vinous

Outer quote mark Bright right red-ruby. Aromas of currant, chocolate, graphite, cedar and menthol, with a powerful overlay of pungent American oak. Round, ripe and surprisingly creamy and generous in the mouth, with fruit-driven flavors of currant, graphite and chocolate. Finishes with substantial, building oak tannins that manage to avoid coming off as dry. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2006)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Supple, with creamy vanilla and mocha oak providing a nice flavor dimension, joining dried currant, anise and sage flavors. (JL) Inner quote mark (11/2006)

K&L Notes

Praise for Silver Oak from Robert Parker: "Silver Oak wines are supple, explosively fruity, and deliver copious quantities of glycerin, extract, and richness wrapped in generous quantities of American oak. Critics have argued that the wine does not age particularly well, but that has largely been proven a myth. I doubt it will last as long as Chateau Montelena, Dunn, or other Napa Cabernets with a 30-40 year aging potential, but these wines have a broad window of drinkability, being delicious at release, and able to sustain their fruit and character for 15 or more years."
