    June 25, 2020 - Just really nice. There’s time left in the bottle, but if you’re thinking about it, yup.

    June 22, 2020 - This vintage has aged gracefully, and time has done a good job of integrating the oak and muting the edginess of its youth. Likely at its peak. Drink up.

    May 25, 2020 - Memorial Day and I grilled a nice quality juicy T-bone steak, onions, bell pepper, and had morels with butter parsley from a skillet on the side (why not - it is spring). I decided to try my third to last ‘05 Silver Oak - wondering how it held up over time. The cork broke (similar to others - hope they are getting better corks now), but I got the wine out of the bottle, aerated it and all was good! This wine by now is the elder statesman and one that is elegant, suave, and well balanced! A bit softer spoken than in the youthful years but still impressive! The nose is introvert, but the mouthfeel and flavors are excellent: rich ripe blackberry, chocolate, charcoal, some oak, followed by a fiendly lingering aftertaste. The oak has become less pronounced and fully integrated in the flavors of the wine. Some people may say the wine is past its peak, and although I do not think it will evolve further, I like it where it is and hope it stays as is for a while so I can find the perfect meal to enjoy it with.
