2016 Silver Oak Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley California USA
Deep ruby in color, the 2016 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is an opulent wine with notes of cassis, ripe raspberry, toasted coconut and shiitake mushroom. This wine has a rich entry, depth through the mid-palate, great structure without being heavy and exceptional length on the finish. Fresh cherry flavors balanced with floral notes and a subtle hint of black pepper add a beautiful complexity. Plush tannins lend to its age-worthiness. Given proper cellaring conditions, this wine will show beautifully through 2040.
Blend: 78.9% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 3.5% Cabernet Franc, 2.3% Petit Verdot, 0.3% Malbec

The 2016 Silver Oak Cabernet Sauvignon comes to the fore with plenty of persistence and oomph. TASTING NOTES: This shows up with generous aromas and flavors of blackcurrant, dill, coconut, and oak. Enjoy its beautifully appointed richness with a grilled ribeye topped with fresh rosemary sprigs. (Tasted: November 11, 2020, San Francisco, CA)
