Blended from various lots and aged in American Oak (50% new, 50% second use) for two years and a month, the Silver Oak Alexander is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon.
A dark, ruby color and a vibrant nose of black cherry, wisteria and sweet baking spices. On the palate, the wine is elegant and expressive and echoes the berry, floral and spice notes from the nose.

Given proper cellaring, this wine should give drinking pleasure through 2032. But there’s no need to wait, as the wine is supple enough to offer a great deal of pleasure in the near term.
Joshua Greene of Wine & Spirits Magazine says: “Like a savory claret pumped up on performance-enhancing California climate, this is nuanced and relatively austere for all its bold, plumy fruit. The supple richness of tannins lends it textural finesse, the quality of Silver Oak that may be most responsible for its legend.”
