Bursting out of the glass. Bright overall with a surprising amount of tannin. Plenty of years left for this!

Better than expected. A bit big & oaky for my taste, but kinda fun. If you have any, drink up soon, it won't last too much longer.

Going back in time, a 97 Silver Oak, true to it's name after 20 years, lots of oak, mellow tones

From a Magnum, generously brought to the charity auction by Andy Joiner. Decanted and poured after about 30 minutes in the decanter. Still quite dark in color with a touch of bricking. Nose immediately suggests cork but not so much on the palate. The classic Silver Oak cedar remains along with (fading) fruit. Surprised by the other recent 97 reviews as this was somewhat of a letdown. More like a '98. Oh, but we finished it!

Interesting wine to try. But given the vintage was a bit of a let down

Nice wine. Lots of fruit. Tannin has softened. Time to drink. But can last 2-3 more yrs.
