COMMENTARY: When I first tasted the first Silver Oak Cabernet Sauvignons in the mid-1970s, I knew there was something here, but I could not pin it down. The first wines were powerful. As the decades moved through, I became well-acquainted with what the founders Raymond Twomey Duncan and Justin Meyer had envisioned, and the project continues to blossom. Now as we approach Silver Oak’s five decades, the wines are getting better and better. The 2015 Silver Oak Alexander Valley Cabernet is another success story. Almost too predictable, this wine is as robust as they come. TASTING NOTES: This wine is a mouthful of ripe red and black fruits, medium tannins, and oak nuances. Pair it with an ultra-thick grilled ribeye and savor away. (Tasted: June 24, 2019, San Francisco, CA)
