Winemaker Notes

Fortress Cabernet Sauvignon delivers aromas of dark fruit, mocha and baking spices on the nose. The palate exhibits well integrated tannins that complement the subtle earthy flavors of pomegranate, blackberry and sweet pipe tobacco. With a rich, opulent mouth feel, Fortress is an approachable wine with a silky, lush finish.
Blend: 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Petit Verdot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 2% Syrah, 2% Merlot

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WE 91
Wine Enthusiast
This dense, round, full-bodied red from a quiet appellation offers smoked plum and dark cherry flavors, with integrated oak and tannin.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
Plump and rich without being weighty, with well-defined plum, cherry, currant and blackberry flavors, all evenly dispersed. Ends with supple, graceful tannins and an echo of oak and licorice. Drink now through 2029.

Born in Luxemburg and raised in Bavaria, Germany, early on winemaker Charly de Pottere experienced the social and family connections built through sharing beautifully crafted food and wine. He discovered the profession of winemaking during a harvest internship at Chateau Haut Brion in Bordeaux in 2005. At Haut Brion, their love of the wine and relentless dedication to tradition inspired Charly and, for him, there was no turning back.

His sense of adventure brought him to California to study at UC Davis. After graduating with a B. S in Viticulture and Enology, he planned to return to Europe. However, California’s wine, countryside, innovative winemaking practices and climate kept him Stateside.

Charly has focused his career on making ultra-premium Napa and Sonoma wines and has worked with prestigious boutique wineries such as Round Pond, Hartwell and Alpha Omega. He joined Jackson Family Wines in 2012 to work with the legendary Kendall Jackson Chardonnay program and in 2014 he returned to his roots as a Winemaker in the Bordeaux program. He continues to travel the world’s wine regions seeking inspiration and fresh thinking including harvest travel to his home country of Germany, Italy, France and South Africa.

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, Malbec and 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.
