This Cabernet is set each vintage as a Bordeaux blend, with soft and silky tannins and a plush, full mouth-feel setting it up for immediate enjoyment, although it's built to age and develop further complexity. Aromas of dried herbs, cedar, clove and lavender join flavors of dark red fruit led by figs, black cherry, currants, boysenberry, huckleberry, raspberry, and evident oak spice are joined with more traditional Knights Valley tones of black olive, wild sage and mocha chocolate. Fine acidity and balance with an elegant structure lead to a lingering, memorable finish.

The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon (Knights Valley) is powerful, dense and wonderfully rich, with tons of the savory and mineral inflections that make Knights Valley Cabernets so alluring. This mineral character helps to play off the natural radiance of the year. Graphite, game, menthol, licorice and red fruit are front and center. In this vintage, the wine has a bit more suppleness and red fruit than it usually does.
