2015 Silver Oak Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
The Silver Oak Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 is one of the most-anticipated vintages of this icon we’ve seen in many moons! This is destined to not only be crowd-pleaser for lovers of this wine, it will cellar for decades too, if you let it!
Our 2015 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is comprised of 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12.6% Merlot, 3.6% Cabernet Franc, 2.4% Petit Verdot and 0.4% Malbec. It was blended in early 2016 and aged for 24 months in 85% new American oak and 15% one-used American oak barrels from our Missouri cooperage, The Oak. Early blending assures a balanced core and allows all components to achieve a seamless harmony during barrel aging. It was then aged for an additional 20 months in bottle before being released in February of 2020.
Our 2015 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon has a deep, rich red color with a purple rim. A robust wine with an assertive and alluring attack, it has notes of strawberry, cigar and tea leaves with a touch of black pepper and clove. A mouthwatering mid-palate of raspberry is followed by an expressive and bright finish. With lush and silky tannins, this age worthy wine will show beautifully through 2038 given proper cellaring conditions.
