Deep, rich, chunky and full-bodied. Loads of black fruit, licorice, currant, espresso roast, slight tobacco and a hint of chocolate.
"A gorgeous Cab that shows the density and concentration, but also the elegant structure, of a fine mountain vineyard. Dry and richly tannic, this 100% Cabernet has pinpoint flavors of currants, plums and cedar."
"The serious Cabernets start with the 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Trace Ridge, which demonstrates once more the high potential that Peter Michael’s Les Pavots first exhibited for Knight’s Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, especially when grown on hillsides. This classic Cabernet possesses plenty of black currant, licorice, cedar, and spice characteristics."
