The 2014 Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from the west side of Bavarian Lion in Knights Valley, a terroir characterized by it’s cooler climate, gorgeous higher elevation vines, and gentle sloping hills. The majority of the grapes were selected from a flat area with limited terrain, producing more blue fruit flavors, while one quarter of the grapes were sourced from a steep knoll, bringing in a complementary touch of red spice fruit that makes for a more interesting wine overall.
This wine boasts alluring aromas of black cherry liqueur, complemented with hints of cedar, pencil lead and licorice that perfectly capture the mountain air and terrain of the vineyards in the glass. This is a finely structured wine that will reward the patient collector of fine Cabernet Sauvignon over the years.
