Knights Valley Reserve is a barrel selection, a blend of the best vineyard lots in a given vintage. To
maintain the unique characteristics of the different lots from varying areas of the vineyard, they are kept
separate through vinification and aging, and only the most expressive are selected for this Reserve
Extended maceration created larger tannins to enhance the lush mouthfeel of the blend and
extracted a maximum of color, aromas and flavors. The wines were aged in French Nevers oak barrels
(47 percent new) for 19 months, enhancing the rich mouthfeel and structure. A small portion of
Malbec and Petit Verdot was also added to add further complexities to this memorable wine.
