The Quintessence of Dedication: 2016 Silver Oak Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley

A Visionary Beginning: "It All Started With a Handshake"

Silver Oak's legacy commenced with a firm handshake between two visionaries, Ray Twomey Duncan and Justin Meyer, marking the inception of a singular focus on Cabernet Sauvignon, matured exclusively in American oak. This union sprouted from a Napa Valley dairy barn, yielding a scant 1,000 cases in its first vintage, a testament to humble beginnings destined for greatness.

Rooted in Rich Tradition and Environmental Stewardship

With the baton passed to successors within the Duncan family, Silver Oak's journey is a testament to family, friendship, and a relentless pursuit of excellence. The rebirth from the ashes of the 2006 Oakville winery fire epitomizes resilience, leading to the world's first LEED Platinum certification for a winery, heralding an era of eco-conscious viniculture.

2016 Vintage: A Symphony of Flavor and Finesse

The 2016 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon mirrors this dedication, presenting an opulent deep ruby hue, a medley of cassis, ripe raspberry, toasted coconut, and shiitake mushroom. Its rich, structured palate, balanced by fresh cherry and floral notes, promises longevity and evolution until at least 2040.

Craftsmanship in Every Bottle

Crafted with 78.9% Cabernet Sauvignon, blended with Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, and Malbec, and aged for 24 months in American oak barrels, this wine encapsulates the essence of its terroir. The meticulous blending before barrel aging ensures a complex integrated wine and ready to enchant upon release.

A Testament to Ideal Conditions and Artful Viticulture

The 2016 vintage is a product of exceptional growing conditions, a beacon of the potential held within Napa Valley's drought-stricken terrain. This vintage emerged from ideal weather and meticulous vineyard stewardship, resulting in a plush and balanced wine.

Savoring the Journey

As Silver Oak marches forward, underpinned by the philosophy that "we have yet to make our best bottle of wine," the 2016 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a testament to their journey. It is not merely a bottle of wine but a narrative of passion, resilience, and the relentless pursuit of perfection.
