Provided by my beloved brother in law (I've always really liked my brother in law, but he reached "beloved" status when he brought this gem over), this is another in a line of wonderful Cabernets from Silver Oak. If there is another wine that so consistently delivers pleasure at this level, I don't know what it is. Elegant, forward, richly flavored with sweet dark currents, oak, and spice. Beautifully balanced as always, excellent with food, completely ready to drink. Maybe a tinge less powerful than some previous Silver Oaks I've had, but an absolute joy to drink. Now if they or someone else could only make this at about 1/3 the price. - HK 2000-06-10
