"Silver Oak Cellars is one of the most tried-and-true Cabernet Sauvignon producers in California. The 2015 Napa Valley gushes forward with superb richness and persistence. TASTING NOTES: This wine is packed with ripe fruit and pleasingly accented with oak. Enjoy its aromatic aromas and flavors of ripe fruit, flowers, and oak."

"Seductive singed juniper, black tea and sassafras notes lead the way, with mulled blackberry, plum and black currant fruit following along. The fine-grained finish laces everything up with mouthwatering acidity and subtle grip. Drink now through 2031."
The 2015 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon has a deep, rich red color with a purple rim. A robust wine with an assertive and alluring attack, it has notes of strawberry, cigar and tea leaves with a touch of black pepper and clove. A mouthwatering mid-palate of raspberry is followed by an expressive and bright finish. With lush and silky tannins, this ageworthy wine will show beautifully through 2038 given proper cellaring conditions. ~ Winemaker Notes
