    December 22, 2018 - Medium tannins, good acidity, dark berries, cherries, and prune. Well structured, beautiful colour and a great wine.

    December 7, 2018 - At home, thought I would go with something "old school" tonight. Its been a couple years since last bottle. These bottles in my cellar from release, well stored. Cork came out clean.

    Core color ruby/purple, thinning at the rims. Nose is gentle dark berries, baking spice, vanilla oak. Palate of "dusted" cherry and red currants, pomegranite, black tea. Well aged, elegant texture. Tannins smooth and resolved. Medium weight and finish.

    Still really nice, fruit is faded but still expressive in a different way than it would have been in its youth. Some hints of the signature SO vanilla oak. Still alive and nice to drink...

    November 15, 2018 - Very nice wine—something to please everyone. Not too much fruit, not too much oak, not too much must. Still a good deal of tannins. Very well balanced, pleasant wine.

    October 27, 2018 - Drank this just in time. Probably should have opened it a few years ago. But it still shows up with mild, complex fruit with the vanilla-oakiness that Silver Oak proudly creates. Shorter finish than you might expect from a younger Alexander Silver Oak. But overall, a welcome, if a bit late expression of this winery's classic legacy.
