Dark fruits, leather, cocoa, smooth tannins. Still some hints of vanilla.

Tasted blind. Impressively silky tannins but otherwise not my thing. Really ripe fruit that is fading and not leaving much in its place.

Deep, opulent, sticky black berry fruit, cedar, damson and full on oregano herbs. Quite nicely integrated in the mouth, deep black fruit, chocolate style tannin, plenty of sweetness with out too much oak. A gentle giant, alc kicks a bit on the back end

Fruits fall slightly into a liqueur realm. Ripe & evolved blackberries, black cherries, black cherry cola, baked pomegranate, spiced plum, figs & dates, Christmas cake, spice-box, tobacco leaf, steeped tea, tough leather, crushed rocks, dry stems, brown sugar, decayed florals, good acidity and a well polished finish.

Delicious - the epitome of a classic Napa Cabernet - this wine for starters had such soft silky tannins you swear they didn't exist. The acid was high the finish was long and the abundance of aromas and flavors were so delightful I wish their was more. Cedar, oak, leather, tobacco, leading to cassis and rich black berry which is the opposite of how you would expect it to be. None the less a legendary wine with exemplified qualities. Well done @silveroakcellars

Classic Napa Cabernet from a great vintage! Aging so gracefully. Oak finding aromatic and tannic place. Still a lot of life left!
