Owner description: We pride ourselves on making one varietal that is food-friendly and deliciously drinkable upon release. Our story begins in the early 1970's when Ray Duncan befriended winegrower Justin Meyer. The two formed a partnership and co-founded Silver Oak Cellars in 1972 with the bold vision of producing only Cabernet Sauvignon. Come experience the Silver Oak Cellars Napa Valley winery in Oakville, CA to enjoy exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon wine tasting tours.

My husband and I chose the Food and Wine pairing which is held upstairs in a conference room of sorts. The food was delicious and they accommodated my vegetation request. It was roughly an hour and was a guided tasting by a Silver Oak devotee and long time employee. It was a nice change from all the standing and was a great opportunity to meet other couples. Ages mid twenties-60's. After the tasting which included Silver Oak varieties as well as another boutique winery (I believe?) that they own.
After the tasting, back downstairs my husband and I were treated to a very generous pouring each of the 2001 Silver Oak, Alexander Valley Cabernet. A wonderful year and a really beautiful wine.

Some of the best we tasted all week - easy access and not crowded.

Three friends and I selected Silver Oak for a wine tasting based on the recommendation of a friend and the good reviews on Trip Advisor. The property is very attractive - we enjoyed walking around the grounds. We especially enjoyed getting outside of the tasting room because we found the man who served us there to be condescending, bordering on rude. I believe he made certain assumptions about us when he learned we were from South Georgia. We did not buy any wine; we received a souvenir wine glass with our tasting.

What a sight to see.. but beyond all the visual stimulation, the heart of the matter is their wines. They were truly exceptional. Staff, knowledgeable and friendly. Bought a bottle before were left, and took some amazing pictures!
