Alcohol By Volume Guide
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.
Our 2007 Silver Oak Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a profound, fruit-driven wine from a great California vintage. It has a dark ruby color
with a purple edge and an inviting nose of ripe black plum, blackberry, baking spices and soy sauce. On the palate, the wine is rich and full,
reminiscent of the flavors of a berry cobbler. It has a long, fruity finish with fine grained tannins, and is a testament to exquisite ripeness at moderate alcohol. With proper cellaring, this wine should give drinking pleasure
"An elegant Silver Oak from this very fine vintage. It’s soft and herbal, in the way of Alexander Valley Cabernets, with tobacco, blackberry and subtle oak flavors. Drinking well now, and should age for a very long time."
I might have had a bad bottle but this was terrible. I was shocked how bad it was. There was little discernible nose and the taste was astringent. We poured it out and enjoyed a bottle of Jordan Cab which confirmed the Silver Oak did not match up.
The 2007 Silver Oak is another great Cabs from one of the leaders in Napa. The Silver Oak style is unique and the 2007 didnt disappoint.
LOVE it... do smooth and very good.

always reliable, perfect amount of oak.
Smooth & Supple
I collected Sliver Oak during the 1980's and it was beautiful. Especially the Alexander Valley. This release is worth about $39.00 per bottle. It's soft and smooth, but has a watery quality. They need their original winemaker back.
nice bold cabernet. lots of fruit yet good tanins. i had the 2006 vintage. i'd peg a price at 40$ rather than 60$ where it cannot compete with other 60$ napa cabs like caymus and larkmead. just my 2c.

Learn About Sonoma County
Twice as large as Napa in size, Sonoma County only makes about a half the amount of wine as her northeasterly neighbor. But Sonoma, with her size, is able to vouch for more diversity within her borders, including sub-AVAs that are climatically varied. The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon
(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
