Wine Maker's Notes

The 2001 Napa Valley is a blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. It was blended and barreled down in early 2002, in 100% new American Oak. We blend prior to barrel-aging to achieve a balance of fruit and tannin before they are influenced by oak. We age the wine in barrel for approximately 25 months to develop a harmony of the components, and then bottle-age for another 20 months, so itís ready to be enjoyed upon release.

The 2001 Silver Oak Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a profound and powerful wine with great finesse. It has a deep, garnet color and a concentrated nose of cassis, chocolate, cloves, nutmeg and vanilla. This wine illustrates great depth and balance on the palate, with a sweet core of cassis fruit and a long finish bursting of berries and dark chocolate. It will continue to improve until 2027 given proper cellaring.
