Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa (78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc, and 2% Petit Verdot) possesses a sweet, jammy bouquet of black currants intermixed with barbecue smoke, tobacco, espresso, and herbs. (RP)
Complex, with a mix of creamy vanilla-tinged oak, dried currant, herb, pencil lead and sage notes that are tight and tannic, ending with a mineral and pebble aftertaste. Well-balanced. (JL)
It was a big year for Merlot and friends at Silver Oak: the 2003 Napa Valley is a blend of just 78% Cabernet Sauvignon with 13% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. The winery's current library notes: "The 2003 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon has a dark ruby-red color and a nose of black cherry, blackberry and violets. It has a complex fruity attack, an elegant mid-palate and a long moderately tannic finish. This wine will continue to improve to 2024, given proper cellaring."
