Very pleasant cab as it it introduced to the palate. Maybe a tad more fruity than a lot of California Cabernets. Flavors include blackbery or maybe black cherry. Very sedate tannins would make this wine attractive to a lot of people. US$16.99 at Costco a year ago.

A good, rich Cabernet for drinking now and over the short term. Itrsquo;s dry and full-bodied, and if itrsquo;s a little heavy, the blackberry, currant, butter and cedar flavors are delicious.

Beringer’s Knights Valley Cabernet has been a staple of their portfolio for over three decades. Earning AVA status in 1983, Knights Valley in the northeastern Sonoma has proven to be an ideal spot for lush Cabernet and Beringer has taken advantage of that fact to produce this winner year after year. This 2009 is beautiful success, scoring 91 points in the Wine Spectator who said "A lot of Cabernet at this price. Combines ripe, plump, plum, black cherry and black berry flavors in a rich, smooth, polished style, full bodied and firming nicely on the finish, where the tannins have a minerally edge. Drink now through 2021." Don't miss it!

Good full medium ruby. Slightly medicinal aromas and flavors of dark plum and licorice. Broad on the palate but rather backward today and not yet revealing much. The dark plum character carries through to the firmly tannic finish.

Notes of blackberry, dried herbs, and star anise balanced with distinct, rich tannins.

The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Knights Valley emerges from the glass with sweet red berries, flowers, licorice and sweet spices. It is an attractive, mid-weight wine with fine balance and length. In 2009 the blend is 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. Anticipated maturity: 2011ndash;2014.

The 2009 Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon has aromas of clove, allspice, lavender, and cocoa. Juicy flavors of blackberry, sweet tobacco, and pink pepper are accented by fine, approachable tannins, nice body and a rich finish.

Firm, intense and concentrated, with spicy, loamy earth, dried berry, sage and herbal scents. Full-bodied, ending with chewy tannins and a dash of black licorice. Drink now through 2015.
