This Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon has beautiful scents of rose petal, cocoa, dark cherry, and raspberry which float from the dark, inky, ruby-red body. The tannins are all-encompassing, along with vibrant acidity, work towards perfect balance and finesse. Beautiful notes of cherries, raspberries, leather, tobacco, vanilla, clove, and anise. The long finish is marked by a touch of dark chocolate and caramel which provide a perfect balance. This is a Cabernet built for the long haul, best enjoyed after decanting or 5-15 years in the cellar.

Food pairing notes
Cabernet Sauvignon is a big wine with intense flavor, full body and structure. A wine like this needs to be paired with richer more intense foods. There are a few “classic” food pairings for Cabernet. Meats like lamb, steak, short ribs, venison. While a portabello mushroom and goat cheese tartlets goes perfectly before dinner.
The Cabernet Sauvignon was hand-picked October 8, 2015, at 25.5 degrees brix. The grapes were fermented 10 days to dryness and then macerated an additional twenty-one days to soften and develop the tannins. Following pressing the wine was moved to 60 gallon French Oak barrels, where it received three gentle barrel to barrel rackings. This vintage was barrel aged for twenty-two months prior to bottling.
