"The Alexander Valley cuvee is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in new oak. Somewhat superficial and light by the standards of this winery, the well-made 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley lacks that extra layer of depth, texture, and fruit. Herbaceous, with sweet red and black currant fruit, spice box, and tell-tale oakiness, this is a wine to drink during its first decade of life." ~Robert Parker

The Duncan Family also established Twomey Cellars in 1999, named after Ray Duncan's mother, where they produce Pinot noir, Merlot and Sauvignon blanc. Twomey has wineries in Calistoga and Healdsburg.
In 2007, the ColoradoBiz cited Silver Oak as one of a dozen California wineries which "have reached cult status" for its Cabernet Sauvignon production and occupies an "important niche in California's wine industry
