    May 27, 2019 - Drank on BI’s deck. Group consensus was that it was pretty bland with no real fruit. It was stored well but a few years over the hill IMO.

    December 2, 2018 - Estava fantastico, cor menos intensa, meio “marrom”. Sem taninos, compotas de frutas vermelhas presentes

    July 31, 2018 - Perhaps it was the setting (celebrating my wife and my 20th Anniversary at the best steak house in Seattle), or the sentimentality of the wine (it was from my late fathers cellar...May God Rest his Soul ����), but this could have been the best Silver Oak I’ve ever had the pleasure of tasting. Decanted for over an hour and was drinking exceptionally well...plenty of distinctive character, but smooth! The sommelier told us the 98’ was a special vintage as it was Meyers last as Head wine maker...tried to find more info regarding this online but can’t find. At any rate a really fantastic wine drinking beautifully at 20 years! (Had been cellared well over the years) Wish I had several more, but grateful we could enjoy our 20th with a classic!

    June 2, 2018 - Surprisingly this wine has aged well. Deep ruby color, with lots of blackberry fruit, hint of cumin. Paired with copper river king salmon for an incredible meal.

    January 2, 2017 - Opened it last night with my first shot at sous vide beef filets. Had held up well. Seemed tannic when first uncorked, but opened out nicely. My first exclamation on tasting it was "black cherry soda!"
    The wine looks tawny colored. The legs are medium. There is heavy sediment in the bottle.
