Silver Oak gets into the Zinfandel business
Silver Oak has purchased Sausal Winery, a family-owned vineyard and winery in Alexander Valley known for old vine Zinfandels.
Their plan is for more Cabernet on this property. Hopefully not at the expense of any of the current vineyards. Silver Oak and Twomey are fairly high-end in price while Sausal is not. Silver Oak's Cabs sell for about $70 to $100. Twomey's Pinots go for about $50. Sausal's wines go for for around $20--for now.
