Saturday, January 12, 2013 - Medium garnet color with long slow legs. Rich earthy nose, with less oak than I expected though still clearly evident. Initially the nose was very restrained but after several hours it opened up nicely. More Bordeaux-like than I ever remember a Silver Oak tasting. Flavors include oak/vanilla, leather, black plum, a touch of Brett-like earth, mushrooms, maybe even truffle, and a long coffee in the aftertaste.very well balanced and luscious.
