Silver Oak Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

SKU 3711


Our 2008 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a dark, rich full-bodied wine with great tannic structure and mouth-feel. It has a garnet color and a nose of ripe boysenberries, cherry liqueur, dark chocolate, sandalwood and a hint of roasting meat. On the palate, it is mouth-coating and incredibly rich in umami. It has a very long, savory finish with the slight grip of fine-grained tannins. Given proper cellaring, this wine should give drinking pleasure through 2030.

Wine EnthusiastThis lovely wine shows the soft tannins and herbaceousness you often find in Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignons. That dried herb taste accompanies blackberry and black currant fruit. It's classic Silver Oak, dry and elegant. Drink now-2016.

Wine SpectatorPresenting a subtle, graceful mix of herb, ripe berry, black tea and tobacco, this is intense without being weighty, ending with firm, fine-grained tannins. Drink now through 2024.
