Beringer Cabernet Sauvignon Knights Valley 2007
Wine Tasting Notes The Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon has bright cherry fruit flavors, sweet vanilla oak, and smokey aromas that are accented by a pretty background of dried herbs and bramblebush scents. The wine is well structured with a full mouth of fruit that is sweet and zesty, and supported by a nice bright acidity and round tannins. A small amount of Malbec was added to the final blend for greater complexity.
This wine is good for the money. Middle of the road but definitely isn't horrible. Black fruits and is fairly well balanced. Cheers
Good full body
This is a great wine for the money. My go-to wine when stopping by the shop before a dinner party.
External Reviews for Beringer Cabernet Sauvignon Knights Valley
The wine that made Knights Valley famous. This has been even better in recent vintages than when it began, yet it has consistently shown a ripe, soft, appealing style.
Polished, with lots of flair, this well-crafted wine shows good varietal character. Cassis, olive and herb flavors are joined by smoky oak and dry, fine tannins, with lively acids. Try cellaring for a year or two.
A sleeper selection, the realistically priced 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon Knight's Valley is a sexy concoction of chocolate, plums, sweet cherries and currants. This sensually textured offering possess silky tannin, medium to full body, a sweet mid-section, and a long, heady finish. It is the type of Cabernet Sauvignon that will make a lot of friends for this varietal. Drink it over the next 7-10 years.
A very nice wine, with good, ripe black-currant fruit; dry and balanced with aromas and flavors of sweet, smoky oak. The flash is on the surface and it's a little sharp, so it's not an ager. But it's a tasty wine.
The pure, ripe, opulent 2000 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Knight's Valley may turn out to be outstanding. It exhibits an opaque ruby/purple color as well as sweet black currant fruit intermixed with spice box, licorice, underbrush, and vanilla. Ed Sbragia told me there was no fog in 2000 in Knight's Valley, and although it was relatively cool, he was pleased with what was produced.
"Extended maceration created larger tannins to enhance the lush mouthfeel of the blend and extracted a maximum of color
Offers moderately rich dusty berry, cedar, anise and gritty tannins. A solid wine that's dry around the edges. Drink now through 2006.
