Rare Double Magnum (3 liter bottle) of Silver Oak's new 2013 Napa Valley Cabernet. Silver Oak Cellars produces some of California's most sought-after Cabernets and the 2013 Napa Valley Cabernet is another highly-collectible wine.
The Napa Cabernet Sauvignon is more limited in availability than the Alexander Valley. Production is the largest yet for the Silver Oak 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa (a blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petit Verdot). Full-bodied, chewy, and muscular with an inky dark ruby/plum color, and hints of wood smoke, tobacco, cinnamon, espresso roast, and herbs, this dense, chewy, lavishly oaked wine should drink well for 10-12 years.
Winemaker Daniel Baron's Tasting Notes: "Our 2013 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is dark ruby in color and entices you with a nose of raspberry, cassis and loose pipe tobacco. This full-bodied wine has an assertively silky structure and is notably spicy on the palate. Flavors of sage and blackberry mark the wine’s entry. The strong acidity in the mid-palate is followed by a lingering finish. Given proper cellaring, this wine will provide drinking pleasure through 2038."

Limited new release from Beaux-Freres. *This is a rare MAGNUM (1.5L) bottle*
95 Points Wine Spectator: "Remarkably and seamlessly complex, with a polished and refined core wrapped in a silky raspberry and blueberry flavors, accented by savory spice and orange zest hints. The long finish builds toward polished tannins. Drink now through 2025. From Oregon."
The Beaux Freres vineyards are located on an 86-acre farm in Yamhill County's Willamette Valley. Majestic Douglas fir trees comprise just under 50 acres of the farm, with the homestead and barns occupying another six acres. The vineyard is situated on 30 acres of steep contiguous hillsides that enjoy an exceptional south/southwest exposure. The property, purchased in 1987 by Michael Etzel and the noted wine critic Robert M. Parker, Jr., was named Beaux Freres (the brothers-in-law). A few years later Robert Roy, a Pinot Noir and red burgundy enthusiast from Quebec, became the third member of the Beaux Freres partnership.
