Silver Oak Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
Our Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon reflects over forty years of winemaking in Sonoma County's Alexander Valley, a delicious and seamless expression of Cabernet Sauvignon from this historic California wine region made famous by this varietal. A blend of multiple vineyard sites including our Red Tail, Miraval and Geyserville Estate vineyards, this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon gains complexity through the varied terroir found across Alexander Valley's hillsides, benchlands and valley floor. With exuberant dark fruit flavors and a rich and generous mid-palate, our Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is released six months ahead of our Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon as its approachable, fruit-forward profile lends itself to earlier enjoyment.
Wine SpectatorExhibiting a mix of dusty, savory roasted herb, tobacco leaf, road tar and green underbrush flavors, this is a solid effort that needs time. Best from 2020 through 2030. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
