Winemaker Notes

The 2016 Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is deeply colored and bursting with aromas of crushed blackberries, spicy dark plum, dusty cocoa powder, cassis and wild raspberry. The complex layers of spice, red fruit and chocolate on the palate are framed in rich, velvety tannins with a long lingering finish.

Enjoy this Cabernet Sauvignon now with braised short ribs, beef ravioli or lamb shanks.

Blend: 91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Malbec, 1% Cabernet Franc

COMMENTARY: The 2016 Rodney Strong Vineyards Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon delivers plenty of oomph on the palate. TASTING NOTES: This wine is abundant from the start and finishes as a satisfying drink. Enjoy its packed black fruit and oak aromas and flavors with a thick, rare cut of oven-roasted, prime rib. (Tasted: May 27, 2020, San Francisco, CA)

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.
