    January 6, 2018 - Coravin: cherry, pepper. On its way out but still drinkable!

    January 5, 2018 - beautiful color, legs, nose, some sediment. The bottle had beautiful etching of grapes set around the label.

    December 4, 2016 - Cork was healthy and this poured red but more translucent than I was expecting. The nose and pallet were pretty closed and I was nervous it was done. As it opened I found myself enjoying it very much but not in any way reminded of Silver Oak. Not that I am any sort of Silver Oak expert. This just felt different.

    August 1, 2015 - At twenty six years, this was showing its age in the rust brickish color showing on the edges. Muted upon opening, the expressive signature layers of 'silver' oak emerged and amplified over the course of the evening. The slightly astringent acidic black berry fruit was punctuated by a layer of leather, earthy tobacco leaf and black tea before giving way to the layer of oak that permeated the finish. This was a special bottle that showed its heritage and terroir well.

    September 23, 2014 - Have cellared these since mid 90's purchase. Cork was perfect. Good colour, pale at the rim Wine has plenty of yummy blackcurrant / cassis flavour. Tannin firm but in balance - plenty of clean fruit and really a nice bottle of wine.
