    Silver Oak Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2008
    Sold Out $99.99
    2009 vintage available for $99.99
    Style: Big & Bold
    Have not had this vintage but would suggest that it be aged substantially based on my experience with the 2001 Napa Valley Silver Oak. Bought 3 bottles and was thoroughly unimpressed and depressed after sampling the first shortly after purchasing. After reading reviews and tasting notes, we waited 10 years to try the second bottle...vastly better: fuller and deeper flavor. If you don't want to wait, I'd suggest the Alexander Valley Silver Oak. It also improves with aging but it is much better young than the Napa Valley, in my opinion at least.

    Robert Oatley Signature Cabernet Sauvignon 2010
    Sold Out $17.99
    2012 vintage available for $14.99
    Was a little disappointed with this wine. Not as full-bodied or with as much of a finish as American cabs, but quite drinkable.

    Hall Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2009
    Sold Out $35.79
    2011 vintage available for $39.99
    Style: Big & Bold
    Tried this recently and it was better than the very good 2008 vintage. Nice nose with fruity/earthy complex flavor - silky mouth feel. I bet it will be even better in a couple of years. I only give it a 4 rather than a 5 because their Kathryn Hall cab, an awesome wine, is what I'm comparing it to. This wine is what the Alexander Valley Silver Oak used to be.
