Wilfred Wong of Wine.com – “A pretty dazzling effort from one of America’s very best Cabernet producers! The Silver Oak Napa Valley Cabernet has deep ruby, black color. powerful and impressive aromas of black fruit, pencil lead and oak, lots going on here to love; medium to full bodied, well-built on the palate; dry, medium acidity, well balanced powerful black fruit and sweet oak flavors; long finish, youngish aftertaste.
