Wine Review: This midnight purple colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Beringer really impressed the Tasting Panel. It opens with a black tea and cassis bouquet with hints of cherry, balsam and cedar. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced, round and velvety. The flavor profile is a tasty ripe blackberry jam with notes of black cherry, blueberry and red currant. We also detected hints of black licorice and cedar. The finish is dry and its moderate sticky tannins build-up and last for a very long time. The Panel suggested that this Cab can certainly be enjoyed on its own. With food, we suggested pairing it with a black pepper encrusted tuna, a standing rib roast, short ribs or even chocolate mousse. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: This Cabernet is set each vintage as a Bordeaux blend, with soft and silky tannins and a plush, full mouth-feel setting it up for immediate enjoyment, although it's built to age and develop further complexity. Aromas of dried herbs, cedar, clove and lavender join flavors of dark red fruit led by figs, black cherry, currants, boysenberry, huckleberry, raspberry, and evident oak spice are joined with more traditional Knights Valley tones of black olive, wild sage and mocha chocolate. Fine acidity and balance with an elegant structure lead to a lingering, memorable finish.
