Silver Oak’s Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon reflects over forty years of winemaking in Sonoma County’s Alexander Valley, a delicious and seamless expression of Cabernet Sauvignon from this historic California wine region made famous by the varietal. A blend of multiple vineyard sites including the Red Tail, Miraval and Geyserville Estate vineyards, this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon gains complexity through the varied terroir found across Alexander Valley’s hillsides, benchlands and valley floor. With exuberant dark fruit flavors and a rich and generous mid-palate, their Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is released six months ahead of their Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon as its approachable, fruit-forward profile lends itself to earlier enjoyment.
Silver Oak Cellars
Silver Oak Cellars was founded in 1972 by entrepreneur Raymond T. Duncan and winemaker Justin Meyer with one vision: the pursuit of exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon. For 40 years, they have produced delicious and distinctive Cabernets from their Napa Valley and Alexander Valley wineries.
Both the Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and the Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon are blends, made from grapes grown in both wineries’ estate vineyards as well as growers’ vineyards in each region. The two wines have always been separate and distinct, consistently representing the very best of their respective appellations.
After selecting Daniel Baron to succeed him as winemaker in 1994, Justin sold his share of Silver Oak to the Duncan family in 2001. The family continues to carry Ray and Justin’s vision forward, building a new, ideal winery after a fire devastated their Oakville property. The new winery, opened for harvest in 2008, is a symbol of the tradition of excellence and continuous improvement established by Silver Oak’s founders many years ago.
