Enjoyed this with my in-laws at dinner out on the patio. Barbeque pork steaks, baked potato and blue cheese salad. A nice balance with the acidity of the wine. I've always favored the Alexander Valley over the Napa from this producer with is opposite of my usual stance on cab's from these 2 regions. This wine shows nicely right now but I think it has 10 good years of bottle age left in it. I have 5 more from this vintage and I think I'll let the others lay down for another couple years before I try this again.

Like this better than the 09 Napa had a couple weeks ago. Not as oak and vanilla driven. NR.

- Ruby color with slow forming legs. It's balanced with a full body. Coarse texture with a long finish - Definitely one of my favorite California Cabs. Lots of wonderful oak. Berries galore and a beautiful round finish.

These early 90s cabs are hit or miss these days but this was splendid and maybe a touch on the downslope so I'm glad I drank when I did. Tannins are silky smooth and fruit still nicely there. Leather, graphite and cigar box - could be easily confused for a Bordeaux.

Might be the best Silver Oak I have had. It came out of the bottle really nice, then even opened up over the next 45-60 minutes. Usually I find Silver Oak with fantastic bones but a bit of an agressive tanic structure. This one dropped the agressive attitude and displayed complexity, strucuture and very nice soft tannins. Good nose and nice Cab finish, if I could poke at it at all, the finish wasn't as much of a mouth full of velvet as I would like. Nice Wine!!

Paired with fresh fruit, and porcini crusted filet mignon-the Flemings Mother's Day Brunch Menu. Lovely rich mocha, black cherry, sage, white pepper, and dill on the nose, the dill faded during dinner, more of the same on the palate, medium body, almost elegant, tasty, enjoyed by all the servers, long, lovely mocha finish.

This is a nice cab, but I would have expected more complexity because of reputation. Granted, I've never had the Napa Cab. The wine looks dark ruby colored and it has a bright, strawberry and cranberry nose. Texture is round to silky and medium legs, no sediment. Cherry, Vanilla, and nutmeg are most noticeable. I don't get the strong oak that some are referring to. This is on the lighter end of full body with a medium finish. nice balance of acid.

Nose of mocha, dill, dusty earth, and black cherry fruit when immediately opened, dill subsided to only a hint after 15 minutes, more of the same on the palate, easy to enjoy with grilled turkey burgers today, about 3 years to it's peak, mouth filling and tasty fruit, medium/big body, and medium/long finish.

Fruit has faded quite a bit and left an over oaked and one dimensional wine. Blueberry fruit palate that does not hold up to the sweet vanilla and fat texture of the wine. There is no tension. There is some depth with hints of forest floor starting to develop, but there is not enough fruit and tannins to harmonize with. I am a fan of Silver Oak, but this would have been much better a few years ago. Drink now if you have them.

Very dark fruit with a strong presence and confident delivery. Plenty of oak here. And appealing savory notes. Could be great with a little more fruit and a little less of the drying tannins.

Smooth wine, seemed slightly closed though. Not a lot of, "chew," to it. Yet some very nice ripe berries with vanilla notes. Medium bodied, finish was nice. On the whole an enjoyable bottle with elegant character. Went well with my skirt steak.

Stored at 55 degrees, humidity controlled, since release. Relatively little sediment upon decanting.
Nose is lovey cabernet cassis, elegant but subdued.
On the palate, this wine follows the nose -- elegant but not deep or complex enough to reach the 95 + level.
Still drinking well, but probably will not improve, although 24 hours later (gassed) this bottle was almost as good as an hour after opening.
