Winemaker Notes

The Bavarian Lion Vineyard continues to produce Cabernet Sauvignon that is every bit as good as the neighboring Napa Valley just a few miles to the south. Our block of hillside fruit yields incredible concentration and depth while showcasing the ample sun exposure and volcanic soils of its Knights Valley terroir. Penetrating and exhilarating, the nose is a veritable candy shop of cocoa, coffee, black cherry, confectioner's sugar and maple syrup. Structured with zesty acidity and dusty tannins, the palate adds graphite, cedar, Kalamata olive and black currant compote to the beguiling mix of flavors. A classic Cabernet, it drinks beautifully now with a rib eye steak or rack of lamb, but will soften and develop nuance in the cellar over the next ten to fifteen years.

Critical Acclaim

WS 93
Wine Spectator
Well done in a very ripe and juicy style, with rich plum and berry, black licorice, mocha and cedar flavors. This is full-bodied and supple, leading to a long, fleshy, persistent finish. Drink now through 2018. 230 cases made.

A small and picturesque valley separating Napa Valley on its south border and Alexander Valley to its north, Knights Valley excels in similar varieties as the two aforementioned appellations, namely red Bordeaux varieties and blends, as well as Sauvignon blanc. Originally established by Beringer Vineyards, today several outstanding producers claim acreage here. The circadian cooling effects of the nearby Pacific Ocean create a nighttime respite for vineyards during the hot growing season.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbecand Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
