Dark crimson purple that stains the glass. The aromatic and lifted nose has a core of red cherries, blackberry jam, and cassis, along with a gentle mix of dried florals, sandalwood, tobacco, and leather. Crushed stones and bold fruit combine powerfully on the palate. The wine is weighted and lush, with blueberry compote, allspice, clove, and lavender. The tannin profile is elegant and pixelated, framing the ripe fruit and giving it ample structure. A mix of savory herbs and fresh vanilla on the finish. Everything and more that one expects from the Silver Oak family. Drink now–2038.
