Solid, muddled fruit wrapped in American oak. No formal notes but seems to be cruising past its prime drinking window (for me)

A bit closed. Structured but bordering on austere. Needs more time. Much much more time.

Yes another fantastic #silveroak wine! Muddled dark orange-red color, fruity but with the mature wine flavors, most prominent flavor was ripe nype.

Second bottle with a cork issue, this bottle also had a lot of settlement. Besides the slight corking the wine was as good as we remembered. Solid body, fruity and nutty, with great mineral flavors.

Decanted this and let it open up for about 60 minutes. Smooth, quite dry, full bodied. Lots of dark fruit with hints of oak. Smooth long finish.
