It's no secret that most staff members at K&L tend to lean towards Alexander Valley Silver Oak over the infamous Napa Valley Silver Oak, and it's not necessarily because we think one is better than the other, both are fantastic in their own right, but if you want a cab that leans heavily more towards a Left Bank Bordeaux style coming from California, then the Alexander Valley is your go to. The 2014 finishes bold, yet packed with silky tannic structure, which makes this bottle a rather easy drinker. With Cabernet dominating about 97% of the juice in this bottle, I will the 2014 Silver Oak is a fine expression of what Alexander Valley cab is capable of being, and definitely a fantastic wine to either drink or give for this holiday season.
