Free Shipping on 6 or more
Yet another spectacular Cabernet from Silver Oak, it 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 2015 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is maroon in color with a garnet hue. It has an enticing nose of maraschino cherries, blackberry bramble and brisket with notes of clove and star anise. Mouthwatering with a juicy entry, this wine has a fruity mid-palate of currant with toasted vanilla and roasted brown sugar character from American oak barrels. Structured tannins provide an elegant character with a long and expressive finish. Given proper cellaring, this wine will provide drinking through 2041."
