Silver Oak Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2000

Last night I drank this elegant wine to celebrate my birthday but I was disappointed. The wine was very good but not spectacular and I can only blame myself.

 The “drinking window” on this wine is 2005 to 2014 and it is preferable to consume wine in the MIDDLE of its drinking window. More simply stated, most red wines should be consumed within 10 years of vintage.

 I use Cellar Tracker website CellarTracker.comto identify drinking windows for wines.
