    "On the palate, notes of raspberry are complemented with lingering acidity and a finish of dusty, silky tannins. Given proper cellaring, this wine will provide drinking pleasure through 2036." ~ Winemaker

    Yet another spectacular Cabernet from Silver Oak, the 2013 will have you at hello with its velvety, smooth full body, raspberry notes, sultry spice and distinctly earthy character. Enjoy your first luscious glass with mint pasta parcels filled with spicy lamb sausage. You can thank us later... An easier starter to go with your first few sips are tiny beef sliders with caramelized onions. The solid nature of this Silver Oak Alexander Valley Cabernet warrants meaty fare such as lamb, beef and game. Rabbit cooked with peas, pancetta and carrots will pair beautifully with this garnet Cab. Crisp-roasted duck with broccoli rabe, roasted potatoes and skinny French haricots will show off this Silver Oak's lovely earthiness. Slightly more conventional, we love the lasting tannins of this Alexander Valley nectar with grilled beef sirloin and arugala salad dressed with a mushroom vinaigrette. You won't want this meal to come to a close, so we say bring out the dark chocolate, hazelnut cake and make sure everyone gets a scoop of dense hazelnut gelato on their portion. For those of you who prefer savory endings, open another bottle to go with a potent Gorgonzola. Buckle up winelovers, you are going to love this ride!

    Winery: "Our 2013 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is garnet in color with a ruby red rim, it has an alluring nose of blackberry bramble, baking spices and black olive. Aromas of vanilla, cassis and sage fill the glass, revealing the influence of American oak barrel aging. On the palate, notes of raspberry are complemented with lingering acidity and a finish of dusty, silky tannins. Given proper cellaring, this wine will provide drinking pleasure through 2036."
