    December 13, 2018 - Quite awful really - the oak treatment here is really quite unappealing, marring the ripe fruit that is still present with a strange, vanilla and banana-like flavor. I find little to love or admire here.

    September 23, 2017 - Another disappointing bottle from a set of bottles of old Silver Oak I bought from Benchmark a number of years ago. Disappointing in a similar way. Cork was good. Nose is pretty good with spices, spicy oak, cassis and black berry. The palate starts like this, and has a good texture, but later in the palate, we get more of a chemical flavor - bitter and volatile - maybe acetone. The finish is mostly that, and quite caustic. Nose - 4.5/6, Palate - 4/6, Finish - 3/6, Je ne Sais Quoi - 0.5/2 = 12/20.

    March 28, 2014 - Cork broke when opened. Lot's of sediment.Decanted for about an hour. Wine smelled like fonsesa port. Wine is dead.
    No tannins left. Way pass drinking time.

    November 12, 2013 - Fleshy, a bit low acid, but very nice in a plusher style.

    July 10, 2013 - Wine is still showing well, bricking on the edges with light tannins and a nice balance of fruit still. Don't know if this would have held up this well if this wasn't a magnum.
