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.
Good wine. Standard Silver Oak flavor. Could stand to decant for awhile. We did a blind taste test against the Camus and the crowd preferred the more fruit forward Camus. About the same price. Silver Oak has more acid and would stand up to a heavy steak better I think. A good wine to impress your friends with.
