James Suckling Review
This sits in the redder-fruit zone for the variety and has sappy, leafy nuances with ferrous notes, too. The palate has a smooth array of juicy red and dark-fruit flavors and supple tannins, framed in sweet oak spice. Medium body. Drink now.
Wine Tasting 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, raspberr, 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.
