The 1996 Silver Oak Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon has a brilliant and saturated garnet color with slight bricking at the rim. It displays aromas of espresso bean, jicama, violets and brambly blackberry along with hints of cigar box. It has a rich, sweet entry with better than average depth, great density and flavors of pipe tobacco. The tannins towards the back of the palate and finish are somewhat dusty, offering a tactile and structured closure—but one with restraint and elegance. This wine is in a beautiful spot at the time of tasting and shows little sign of slowing down. Decanting suggested due to moderate sediment. Enjoy now, but this wine will continue to improve through 2027.
