Tasting Notes:

In the glass, this elegant Cabernet shows off an opaque, deep red garnet core. Medium-bodied, with layers of fresh blackberry, plum and fig aromas leading to notes of vanilla, baking spices, sweet tobacco and subtle dried herbs. The palate is well-balanced, with dark berry fruits and notes of vanilla and spice enveloped by soft, round tannins and a pleasing acidity. Drinking beautifully now, or cellar for a few years more.

Additional Winemaker Notes:
  • 2014 was the third consecutive year of drought in Knights Valley. However, the lack of rain did not stand in the way of a nearly perfect growing season. Knights Valley experienced a mild winter, a dry spring, and no heat-spikes during the season. The long, dry days and cooler-than-normal summer encouraged an abundant crop and an early harvest. These ideal conditions allowed their estate fruit to ripen evenly, offering elegant, dark fruit with a juxtaposition of bright acidity and explosive flavors.
  • Estate fruit harvested from 23 year-old hillside vines
  • Aged 20 months in I00% French oak barrels, utilizing 85% new oak from Taransaud and Darnajou coopers, and an additional I6 months in bottle before release.
