2 1/2 Hour Decant. Riedel Vitis Syrah wine glasses. Very Pimp Cool Riedel Glasses. Blueberry on the Nose. Nice Nose! Pretty Nose! Elegant Nose. Nice Color. Nice Start! Spicy & Smokey. Drank with Baby Back Ribs & Brisket. I did Potato Salad, Baked Beans & Corn on the Cob. I also did whole Jalapenos for the side action. Nice mid palate. Sneaky finish. I recommend a 3 Hour Decant before you even think about drinking. It takes time to open up. Pop & Pour is a Bad idea with this wine. 15.5 %alcohol. Very Fun Wine! Very Respectable. This Wine will change in your glass over time - Big Time! 125 Cases Produced. Saturday Night in the BigTown! 92 Points The OKC Kid

Opened up a 2nd Bottle and decanted for 2 1/2 hours before finishing the 1st Bottle. Unbelievable wine!! Perfect from start to finish. Excellent Finish! Blows the 2008 Keenan Merlet Reserve away! The 2008 Keenan Mernet Reserve is a damn good Bottle of wine. I've been drinking a lot of Keenan lately. Cheers! 97 Points. The OKC Kid

Nice Bottle of wine. I drank on Friday night with pizza. I enjoyed this 2008 Silver Oak Alexander Valley. I had this Bottle next to the 2007 Silver Oak Napa Valley Cabernet and the 2008 Silver Oak Napa Valley Cabernet. The 2008 Silver Oak Alexander Valley won hands down. I always usually like Silver Oak! Justin Meyer would be rolling in his grave. 93 Points. The OKC Kid

Nice Bottle of wine. 97 Rating. I have 3 bottles left. Decanted 2 hours before drinking. Only 270 Cases produced. I enjoyed this Bottle better than the 2008 Keenan Mernet Reserve that I had last night. The 2008 Keenan Mernet Reserve was killer! Nice Purple color. Nice fruit up front. Pretty good finish. The finish stays with you for about 45 seconds. Great drinking, just chilling on a Tuesday night. 97 Points. The OKC Kid

Very tight. I decanted for 2 1/2 hours, really started to open up! At first I was like what the hell then I was patient. You definitely need to decant for at least 2 1/2 hours. I bought 4 bottles. I'm a big fan of Keenan. 2007 Great vintage!! This wine will peak in 5 years. I would let this one sit in your cellar for a bit. Cheers Michael Keenan! 93 Points. The OKC Kid
