Did you see us in the news lately? We're excited about some recent press from some great publications.  Including some helpful tips for those holiday shoppers, we are flattered to be featured in InStyle Magazine and Bloomberg’s gift guides.

Wine and Spirits Magazine, December 2011 Issue Year’s Best Cabernet Sauvignon and Blends

During a blind tasting, Joshua Greene ranked our 2006 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon as one of the year’s best Cabernet Sauvignons.  “This is a dark-fruited and floral ’06, with more of the tobacco and green herb character than most growers in Napa Valley allow Cabernet to express.  This varietal character adds complexity and firm structure to a rich and sleek wine.  Cellar it for several years to let the oak integrate into fruit, then serve with prime rib.”

Later in the issue, in a story titled “Where’s the Beef? Classic California Cabernets beyond the Steakhouse,” David Rosengarten discusses pairing the right Cabernet with cuisine outside of its red meat comfort zone.  Rosengarten paired our 1999 Alexander Valley Cabernet with a Vegetable Melange recipe. “Silver Oak’s 1999 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon matches this dish with its raspberry-jam and white-truffle aromas, which follow through on the palate, leaving a juicy impression of sweetness.” David said.  He also noted that he chose wineries that have featured balance in their cabernets for decades, saying “To me, this is the critical move in winning the cabernet-food game: find elegant, harmonious wines.”
