"Our 2012 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a lively and full-bodied expression of Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon from an exceptional vintage. It has a lovely garnet color and opens with aromas of black currant, orange zest and raspberry. These aromas are framed by nuanced notes of vanilla, marshmallow and cocoa, eliciting an effect reminiscent of chocolate-covered berries. The attack is rich and gives way to a mid-palate with breadth and depth, supported with refreshing acidity and integrated, dusty tannins. This wine has power with an unusual vitality and structural balance. Given proper cellar conditions, this wine will provide drinking pleasure through 2034." —winemaker

Wine Anthology review:
Still a young wine, the 2012 Alexander Valley Cabernet is already showing brilliant aromas of ripe black cherries and cassis that meld seamlessly with smoky cigar and vanilla notes from the oak. This is a supreme example of the highly concentrated Cabernet style that Silver Oak is known for, and this 2012 is showing off the best of this spectacular vintage in California. Its smooth flavors of dark berry, toasty cedar, and dark chocolate make it highly enjoyable to drink right now, but the complexity within also makes it a great candidate for some extended bottle aging.
