    December 25, 2021 - This wine was amazing - vibrant and balanced - well structured right on opening - for sons birth year! black cherry, cranberry stood out - but you know it's Silver Oak right away. Cork was perfect but likely because I brought it right home from the winery on release day.

    Notes of sweet and sour cherry, black cherry, cranberry, and dry earth, same on the palate, big body, rich fruit, at peak, enjoy soon, elegant, lovely, complex, rich fruit, medium/long finish, fresh, floral aftertaste, label photo uploaded.
    The second night: Too much herbal bell pepper on the nose and palate, the fruit, flavors, and richness were still present but muted, time to drink up and enjoy this wine is now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    December 27, 2020 - As a newly married couple living in a mediocre (at best) one bedroom apartment, we started out pretty low to the ground. My lovely wife worked shifts at a high-end hotel bar and, one late evening, was allowed to bring home a half-full bottle of Silver Oak left by a guest. We stayed up late and drank it slooooowly.

    We've built something special together, and the sentiment of that first "high end" bottle we shared became a funny tradition for us. One evening, years later, during a very busy season with the kids and family, there was only time for takeout burgers (In-N-Out had just come to town). I knew it would cheer my wife up, so I popped the cork on an old SO. It really did the trick.

    My palate has evolved, but I still keep some older bottles of Silver Oak around to add some cheer to those occasional "take-out burger" days.

    Today was one of those days... like the two of us, it is still a great pairing.
