2016 vintage opened December 2020. Leather and minerals on the nose. Not much happening on the front—no fruit to speak of, but there are some soft tannins that follow through to the back of the palate quite nicely though. The finish is quite unique, though.Without looking at the label I suspect this was aged in American oak, which gives it some leathery hi notes and some bite as you swallow. I wouldn’t give it the scores that the pros are giving it, a 9.3, only because this wine is kind of weak on the front of the palate. But it’s very drinkable, indeed!

This is an easy drinking cab... I enjoyed it best after it was open one hour

Some wines leave you speechless. Silver Oak is one of them.

Release Day Virtual Tasting! A dark ruby color and a nose that says black plum and cherry plus some earth or maybe a hint of leather or tabacco. Smooth at first and then strong dryness, earthiness, mineral and tannins. Leaves some chalky aftertaste (not objectionable) which with more air smoothed out to strong tannins. Would like to have this again in 3 to 4 years. Note- at 45 mins in a glass the taste was much smoother and really great with some clear spice flavors and less tannins.
