Silver Oak Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 1992
from Sonoma County, California
Dark ruby-red color. Rich nose of cassis, raspberry, and chocolate. Very full body, harmonious with echoes of cassis in flavor. Beautifully balanced with a long, medium tannic finish. Will improve for 12 to 14 years.
"The 1992 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon was released in August, 1996, and was sold out within 24 hours. It possesses that tell-tale Silver Oak, lavishly oaky, Provencal herb, sweet, smoky, jammy black-cherry and cassis-scented nose. Full-bodied, opulent, and succulent, this creamy-textured, luscious, low acid wine should continue to drink well for 10-12+ years. These All-American Cabernet Sauvignons continue to be "can't miss" propositions with the majority of Cabernet lovers.

A Customer - L.A. -> Napa -> L.A.
The best Cab in Napa & the '92 is the best year so far. Remember, S.O. only makes Cabernet Sauv Only about 8,000 cases are produced a year. When visiting, you are limited to 1 bottle of each. Tastes of chocolate and berries. See if you can find a bottle from S.O.'s Bonnie's Vineyard (which is too small in grape production to bottle on it's own now).. you'll get the tiniest hint of bell pepper in the aftertaste. NO TANNINS to speak of - so you don't get that chalk feeling on your teeth. They age the wines 7-8 yrs before selling. Beware, closed Sundays. Big glass for a big wine.
