Maestro Dobel 50 is a collection of tequilas, all created to honor founder Juan Dobel’s 50th birthday along with other half-century milestones. Made in the lowlands of Jalisco, using 100% Blue Weber Agaves grown and sourced from a single-family estate, Dobel 50 Silver Oak edition is an extra-aged tequila matured in American oak and then finished in Silver Oak Cabernet Sauvignon wine barrels.
“We are thrilled to announce this release in collaboration with Silver Oak, a Northern California icon for whom we have great respect and shared values of familial heritage, tradition and product innovation,” says Juan Dobel, Founder of Maestro Dobel Tequila. “Dobel 50 Silver Oak edition celebrates a shared 50-year milestone and captures the flavor profile of one of the best wineries we know while enhancing the smooth agave notes of our most exquisite tequila.”
The influence of the Silver Oak Cabernet Sauvignon barrel finish used to create Dobel 50 Silver Oak edition adds notes of citrus and dried fruits, the company says. Altogether the aroma is caramel and vanilla notes, complemented by red fruits characteristic of Silver Oak wine. The palate contains citrus fruits, such as mandarin, with notes of dried fruit such as figs and dates.
“The connection between wine and tequila is not a usual one, but American oak makes for a natural vessel to explore how these two amazing liquids can influence each other,” says David R. Duncan, Silver Oak CEO. “With their focus on generational farming, craftsmanship and innovation, Maestro Dobel made for an ideal 50th anniversary collaboration.”
Dobel 50 Tequila Silver Oak edition is available for purchase nationwide in limited quantities for the suggested retail price of $1,100 per 750-ml. bottle.
