1990 Silver Oak 'Bonny's Vineyard' Napa Cabernet Sauvignon (3L)

SKU #901606 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 1990 Bonny's Vineyard possesses a cigar box character, with considerable black cassis in its flavors. Dense and full-bodied, it exhibits exceptional extraction, plenty of glycerin, and a finish that lasts nearly a minute. Silver Oak's Cabernet Sauvignons are among the most popular wines of California. I have heard mindboggling stories about the huge throng of people, ranging from lawyers in three-piece suits, to show girls and Hell's Angels on motorcycles, that shows up at the winery on the day Silver Oak releases its newest vintage. What a testament to the immensely popular style of these wines!...I have often pondered why Silver Oak's Cabernets are so popular. Certainly Justin Meyer has always believed in harvesting very ripe, physiologically mature fruit. Moreover, he has never spared any expense in utilizing a high percentage of new oak. For example, the Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is aged for thirty months in 100% new oak and the Alexander Valley wine is aged for thirty months in 50% new oak and 50% used barrels. It seems to me the reason for the success of these wines is that Meyer has always recognized (1) that wine is a beverage of pleasure, (2) that the wine's texture is of considerable significance, and (3) that excessive acidification of his Cabernets would compromise their character as well as hedonistic value. This philosophy has ensured a voluptuous, rich, chewy style of Cabernet... Inner quote mark (12/1994)
