Winemaker's Tasting Notes

The aromas of this Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon begin with fragrant sweet red raspberry, cassis, and a warm undertone of mushrooms sauteed in butter. A wonderful mix of inviting flavors, including huckleberry pie, spice cake and toasty oak, expand on the palate and couple with a bright acidty that propels this wine to a delicious energetic finish inviting another sip. This structured Cabernet deserves food with bold assertive flavors. Our favorite pairings are grilled T-bone steak, barbeque bone-in pork or grilled lamb chops with rosemary. Drink now through 2033.
