Winemaker Notes
"Silver Oak's first new label in 20 years is a wine worth the wait."
-Robb Report

A tribute to Silver Oak co-founder Ray Duncan, Timeless Napa Valley is a proprietary red blend from our Soda Canyon Ranch vineyard nestled in the southeastern hills of the Napa Valley. Decades of experience at this unique site allow Silver Oak winemaker Nate Weis and team to highlight the individual merits of each block. Combining the strongest lots from each resulted in a refined and harmonious bottling.

The 2019 vintage rested in French oak barrels for 16 months. This opulent wine has a broad and balanced mid-palate, notes of vanilla and blueberry, a dried floral character and chalky tannins. Anise and cherry lift the palate to a beautiful, lingering finish. In both aromatics and palate, this is an elegant vintage worthy of cellaring for years to come.

The winter of 2019 was marked by cold, foggy days in Napa Valley. Well-drained soils of Soda Canyon Ranch and steady, purposeful farming decisions mitigated the rainy and wet conditions as they persisted into spring. After months of ever-shifting weather, the vines were greeted by a consistent, warm and dry summer plus a mild harvest season, resulting in bright and ethereal fruit.
