Tasted twice in the past several months with consistent reviews. Smoky dark currents and underbrush in the fairly forward nose, along with a touch of tobacco and mint. Flavorful as always -- has Silver Oak ever made a wine that was less than delicious? -- but this struck us as not nearly as rich or long as many other Silver Oaks of past years. - HK 2004-01-10
