Wine Enthusiast Reviews our 2008 Silver Oak Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Steve Heimoff of the Wine Enthusiast writes:
“It’s easy to see why Silver Oak remains so popular with the restaurant crowd. It’s made in a more restrained style than many other Napa Cabs. There’s plenty of berry and currant fruit as well as oak, but it’s accompanied by tobacco and herbs that give the wine an earthiness. What the wine lacks in dazzle it more than makes up for in elegance and subtlety. Should develop well for at least a decade.”

Wine Enthusiast Reviews our 2008 Napa Valley Merlot
Steve Heimoff of the Wine Enthusiast writes:
“Made with a drop of Cabernet Franc, this Merlot is rich, smooth and bone dry. With modest alcohol, it brims with flavors of black and red currant, licorice, anise and white pepper, as well as a subtle touch of sweet, smoky new oak. The grapes come from the cool Soda Canyon area of Napa Valley, at the base of Atlas Peak.”
Wine & Spirits Magazine Selects our ’08 Alexander Valley Cabernet As One Of "Year’s Best Cabernet Sauvignon"
Our 2008 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon has been included in Wine & Spirits Magazine’s “Year’s Best Cabernet Sauvignon” article! Joshua Greene of Wine & Spirits Magazine says,
“Like a savory claret pumped up on performance-enhancing California climate, this is nuanced and relatively austere for all its bold, plumy fruit. The supple richness of tannins lends it textural finesse, the quality of Silver Oak that may be most responsible for its legend. The alcohol is finely integrated so as to be imperceptible. Still youthfully floral, this will age with grace.”

Wine Enthusiast Magazine Reviews our 2008 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Steve Heimoff of the Wine Enthusiast says,
“This lovely wine shows the soft tannins and herbaceousness you often find in Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignons. That dried herb taste accompanies blackberry and black currant fruit. It’s classic Silver Oak, dry and elegant. Drink now – 2016.”

Jon Bonné of SFGate.com Praises Our 2010 Bien Nacido Pinot Noir
In Jon Bonne’s article in SFGate.com “A Thanksgiving splurge: Santa Barbara Pinot Noir” he writes:
“Winemaker Ben Cane's efforts at Silver Oak's sister winery have mostly been focused up north, but here they reach farther afield. Polished and a bit sweet, this takes Bien Nacido's rich fruit and matches it with wonderful acidity and a roasted-spice aspect that never pushes into the cola realm. Light on its feet, and very much in line with Twomey's current style.”

2006 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
“This is a dark-fruited and floral 2006, with more of the tobacco and green herb character than most growers in Napa Valley allow Cabernet to express. That varietal character adds complexity and firm structure to a rich and sleek wine.” – Wine & Spirits Magazine

2007 Alexander Valley Cabernet
“Bright, full red-ruby. Musky blackberry, tobacco, tar and chocolate on the nose, plus a note of dill. Plum, raspberry and tobacco flavors are intensified by sound acidity, with the musky quality carrying through in the mid-palate…” – Stephen Tanzer
