The 2017 Silver Oak Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon offers a satisfying experience from start to finish. TASTING NOTES: This wine excels with aromas of black fruit, anise, dried herbs, and coconut. Pair it with a juicy, grilled ribeye. (Tasted: July 18, 2021, San Francisco, CA)
The 2017 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is ruby in color with a magenta rim. It has an enticing nose of cassis, blackberry, vanilla, sage, and spearmint. Upon entry, this wine builds from potpourri and bramble to a bright pop of raspberry on the mid-palate. A juicy finish with chewy tannins and a medium length.
