Silver Oak Cabernet 2017, Alexander Valley
The LEED Platinum and Living Building-certified facility represents the Duncan family’s thoughtful approach at every step of the winemaking process. The 2017 Silver Oak Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon has the unforgettable Silver Oak character that you are familiar with and is a preview of the sustainable future in the Alexander Valley. It was a jubilant, inaugural vintage for the state-of-the art facility.
The 2017 Alexander Valley Cabernet is composed of 95.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3.6% Merlot, 0.5% Cabernet Franc, 0.3% Petit Verdot and 0.1% Malbec. The final blend was aged for 24 months in American oak barrels from our cooperage, The Oak. Blending before barrel aging—a signature of the Silver Oak winemaking style—allows blends to be based on the inherent qualities of their vineyard components before oak influence.
The 2017 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is ruby in color with a purple rim. Warm and inviting, it has notes of red currant, cassis, ripe plum, cardamom and toffee. There’s depth and weight on the palate—a harmonious intensity. This wine has a long and beautiful finish, and its fine tannins will provide drinking pleasure through 2043 with proper cellaring.
