Spring Food & Wine Pairing

Twomey, Pinot Noir
Asparagus & Quail Egg Crostini

House Smoked Bacon & Lemon Aioli

Asparagus is often misunderstood and under used in food & wine pairings. The green flavor characteristics can overwhelm a wine. However when paired with rich umami flavors like eggs and bacon those same green characteristics take on an herbaceous aroma that highlights the fruit and oak characters in Pinot Noir.

Twomey Merlot, Napa Valley
Braised Lamb Bruschetta

Petite Garden Greens & Black-Truffle-Balsamic Vinaigrette

All Natural Grass fed lamb is braised fall apart tender. The lamb is served on a bruschetta with fresh goat cheese. The heavy sauce reduction has a mouth coating effect from the natural gelatin in the sauce. This softens the tannins in the wine, while the petite salad gives a balance of acidity to keep everything bright and alive on your palate.

Silver Oak, Alexander Valley
Foraged Mushroom Risotto

Triple Cream Brie, Lemon & Parsley

Slow cooked risotto is finished with locally foraged mushrooms & Marin-French-Brie-Cheese. The forest-floor aromas compliment the earthy, dark fruit character of our Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon; while the herb & lemon give a contrasting pop.

Silver Oak, Napa Valley
Fiscalini Bandaged Wrapped Vintage Cheddar

Aged for 36 months with a firm-crumbly texture, this cheddar is nutty, slightly smoky and well rounded. Tyrosine crystals abound in this cheese, lending a “crunchy” mouth feel, similar to Parmigiano Reggiano and a sign of well-aged hard cheese. Aged Cheddar has a rich balance of umami, salt, fat, and acidity. This makes it a natural pairing to Cabernet Sauvignon.

The Story behind the Winery

Our Napa Valley winery in Oakville is the home of our Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and the original site of Silver Oak Cellars. Our location, midway between the Silverado Trail and the town of Oakville, provided the inspiration for the Silver Oak name.

A courtyard and fountain, anchored by Silver Oak’s iconic water tower, provide the entrance to the timber-framed tasting room where visitors will find a large stone fireplace, the Glass House Library displaying vintages dating back to the 1970s, a Chai with oak barrels and a History Gallery with memorabilia from our original building. The interior of the tasting room and the exterior of the winery are wrapped in hand-quarried limestone with a chipped face, reclaimed from an 1800s flour mill in Coffeeville, Kansas.
