The 2014 vintage of Silver Oak's classic Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon has a pleaseinggarnet color with a ruby red rim and bluish tint, hinting at freshness and vibrance. It has an alluring nose of chocolate-covered strawberries, vanilla, nutmeg, truffle and sage. On the palate, it has a broad yet delicate entry and offers cranberry flavors. These flavors are complemented by red fruits and savory umami complexity on the midpalate. The wine finishes with silky tannins, cedar and bramble flavors with excellent length and return. This wine is enjoyable and delicious now, but if cellared properly, can last for another 20 years.
