Wine Review: This very dark ruby colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Arrowood opens with a cherry and almond cookie bouquet with hints of cedar and currant. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and soft. The flavor profile is a mineral infused black currant with notes of cedar. We also detected hints of black plum and black pepper as well. The finish is dry and its moderate dusty tannins build-up before they drift away. The Panel thought this Cab would pair well with Italian beef braciole. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Our 2016 Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is bold with black forest fruit and anise, offering undertones of violet and clove. Cocoa powder comes through on the palate accompanied by broad tannins and a rich and persistent finish.
