Vintage 2014
Wine Type Red
Varietal Cabernet Sauvignon
Region Knights Valley
Winemaker Mark Beringer

The 2014 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.

Beringer Vineyards has owned and farmed its Knights Valley vineyards since the mid-1960’s, when the Beringer family recognized that the cobbled alluvial soils were a great place to grow high quality wine grapes. The Knights Valley designation was first used on a Beringer label in 1974. Beringer was instrumental in garnering official recognition for the area in 1983 as a premier wine growing region in the form of its own American Viticulture Area (AVA) designation.

TASTING NOTES

The 2014 Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon opens with vivid aromas of rich, ripe blackberry fruit, espresso, lavender and subtle licorice spice. The mouthfeel is plush with a very firm structure. This versatile wine has supple blueberry and black berry fruit notes accented by dark chocolate and a lingering, smooth finish.

Winemaker's Notes

To maintain the unique characteristics of the different lots from varying areas of the vineyard, each is monitored carefully through the vinification process. 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 then aged in French oak barrels (25 percent new) for 16 months and underwent malolactic fermentation for further development of texture and mouthfeel.
