2015 Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Estate

Winemaking Notes

The 2015 Knights Valley Cabernet is deeply colored and bursting with aromas of crushed
blackberries, spicy dark plum, and wild raspberry. The complex layers of spice and chocolate
on the palate are framed in rich, velvety tannins with a long lingering finish.

Food pairings

Enjoy this Cabernet now with charcuterie, barbecue chicken pizza, grilled rib eye steak with mushrooms, roasted pork or cellar or cellar it to enjoy over the next 3 to 5 years.

History

Protected from direct Pacific Ocean influence, Knights Valley is the easternmost Sonoma County appellation, known for its warm days and cool nights and is the warmest viticultural region in the county. The valley lies between the Alexander Valley and Chalk Hill wine regions to the west and is situated at the foot of Mount St. Helena to the north. The valley’s beauty and mineral-rich volcanic soils make it well suited to quality viniculture.

The Vineyards

Knights Valley is a rustic and undeveloped hidden gem of volcanic rock and alluvial soils that
are perfect for growing Bordeaux-style wines, especially Cabernet Sauvignon. Early winter
showers were followed by a warm, dry beginning to the new growing season, setting the stage
for an early bud break. Alternating overcast days and heat waves continued through spring and
summer, with a particularly hot period in late June, and an unseasonal rain in July. We harvested
the grapes at peak ripeness from September 12 through September 28 under ideal conditions.
