Wine Review: This very dark ruby colored Cabernet Sauvignon opens with a black currant and wet slate bouquet with hints of black cherry and oak. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with mild balanced acidity. The mouthfeel is soft and silky. The flavor profile is black currant and mild blackberry blend with notes of fine crushed stony minerality. We also detected hints of herbal tea and Baker’s chocolate towards the end. The finish is dry, and its fine-grained tannins build-up and are very nicely prolonged. The Panel would pair this Cab with veal medallions with a brown butter mushroom sauce or pappardelle Bolognese. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: This approachable and delicious Cabernet Sauvignon is a generous Bordeaux blend, with soft and silky tannins and a plush, full mouthfeel. Although this wine is built to age and develop further complexity, the generous and juicy upfront fruit makes it extremely enjoyable in its youth. Aromas of dried herbs, lavender, fresh boysenberry, and lanolin join flavors of dark fruit led by figs, black cherry, and currants. The pronounced oak spice notes work well with the more traditional Knights Valley tones of black olive, wild sage, and mocha. The wine is well-balanced with good acidity, structured tannins, and a superbly elegant finish.
