2016 Silver Oak Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Napa California USA - 1.5L Magnum
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)
