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!!
Had not drank this wine for a number of years but opened up a bottle when a friend came over. Really enjoyable. Burnt cherries and mocha, finely balanced and a powerful finish full of fruit and tannin. Maybe it could have a touch more complexity but great stuff all the same.
