The 2013 Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon has aromas of ripe black fruit, mocha, dried herbs and licorice. Opulent but structured, this versatile wine has supple blue and black fruit notes accented by dark chocolate, roasted coffee and a silky, lingering finish.
For the 2013 blend, the largest portion came from several of our reserve vineyards -- Bancroft Ranch Vineyard in the Howell Mountain AVA, Marston Vineyard in the Spring Mountain AVA and the St. Helena Home Vineyard which was part of the original acreage purchased by Jacob and Frederick Beringer in 1865. The blend is one that highlights the best of Napa Valley’s valley floor and mountain-top terroir.
Ripe dark fruits are accented by hints of cedar and dark chocolate aromas. The mouthfeel is dense and lush, with juicy red and blue berries and a solid structure.
Inviting aromas lead to a lush, juicy palate where the red fruit flavors standout alongside touches of clove and allspice adding depth and complexity. The generous fruit is balanced by the bright acidity making this fresh and vibrant while also silky and satisying.
