“The second release of Timeless is the most deliciously age-worthy new Silver Oak we've judged in the last two decades. The ultra-velvety texture leads to expressive notes of blueberries, preserved plums and dark chocolate with hints of baking spices, cigar box and graham crackers on the finish. Full-bodied with a firm frame of ripe, grainy tannins and creamy vanilla oak that finishes long and minty. The historic decision to use French oak (Silver Oak is typically aged in American oak) is showing a difference as this 2018 edition is a monumental beauty from this legendary winery and a truly glorious Cabernet to enjoy now (decanting recommended prior to 2025) through 2035.” - California Wine Advisors (10/7/2021)
“With richness and depth of flavor, the 2018 Timeless Napa Valley is the embodiment of patience and attention to detail. Decades of experience at Soda Canyon Ranch allow winemaker Nate Weis and team to highlight the individual merits of each block. Combining the strongest lots from each resulted in a refined and harmonious bottling.
In 2018, the diurnal shift at Soda Canyon Ranch produced a darker, lusher fruit profile of Cabernet Sauvignon. Simultaneously, the overnight recovery periods resulted in expressive and refined Merlot, giving the wine a pleasant profile of bright, red fruit. With an extended harvest window, the signature, plush density and structure of Petit Verdot is also prevalent in the final blend. Cabernet Franc thrived in 2018 with its predilection for the cooler soils and the climate of blocks 5, 6, 16, 20 and 21—areas we call the Transition Zone and Hardpan Alley. The variety’s floral and tobacco-like aromatics are accentuated, and its more aggressive nature for back-end tannins tamed.
Once blended, the 2018 vintage rested in French oak barrels for 16 months, developing flavors of vanilla and baking spice. Velvety tannins dance across the palate of bright and lingering cassis. With a smooth finish, this is a comforting wine of elegance and depth—a sophisticated expression of the sedate summer.”
