The 2008 Knights Valley Cabernet exhibits the characteristics that I've come to know and love from this iconic vineyard – rich fruit, accented by rustic qualities. Aromas of red cherry, anise and blackberry preserves are followed by abundant flavors of black cherry and pink peppercorns. The round tannins are embraced by juicy fruit – this vintage is approachable from the start. Dusty, savory characteristics linger into the finish.
"Firm, intense and concentrated, with spicy, loamy earth, dried berry, sage and herbal scents. Full-bodied, ending with chewy tannins and a dash of black licorice. Drink now through 2015."
