Silver Oak Cellars
Back in the early 1970s Silver Oak Cellars emerged as a dream tied to an intrepid idea: to create a Cabernet Sauvignon of fully developed flavors and velvety soft textures on the day it was released for sale. After all, “Life is a Cabernet”- these folks are cabernet sauvignon experts. Their quest for perfection means that they believe that they have yet to make their best bottle of wine- and they will never stop trying. The Silver Oak cabs are intense, opulent, lush- velvety with great balance and depth for longevity and yet, ready to enjoy. 100% American Oak is used in the Silver Oak barrels; winemakers here believe that the American Oak provides less harsh tannins than its French counterpart- this is quite an innovative idea and practice.
Pass the filigreed gates and sweep through the estate gardens, and the surrounding estate vineyards can be seen, encircling the striking winery building. Very guest friendly, the TR, past a shaded courtyard with a beautiful fountain, offers up tastings of new releases and verticals. The Silver Oak Logo Glass is included as a great souvenir. Tours can be arranged by appointment. Though there is no Wine Club, there is a Preferred Customer List that allows you to be privy to the inside scoop on new releases, release parties and other events- it also allows you to keep track of your cellar notes and purchases.
Here’s looking at you, kids.
