Beringer Cabernet Sauvignon Knights Valley 2009
91 points Wine Spectator: 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. (Dec 2011) 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot.
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.
Very nice, smooth cabernet, worth a re-buy (if I have to)
Two and a half glasses
External Reviews for Beringer Cabernet Sauvignon Knights Valley
Notes of blackberry, dried herbs, and star anise balanced with distinct, rich tannins.
Dark cherry meets oak tannins in this firm, juicy red. Therersquo;s youthful tension in the tannins, robust and a bit coarser in this vintage than is typical for this wine. Itrsquo;s generous, simple and warm, a steakhouse pour.

This winersquo;s juicy, sour cherry flavors are plumped up and enriched by the chocolatey tannins of new oak. Itrsquo;s a full-bodied red thatrsquo;s clean and sweet.
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.
Aromas of cherry, anise and cocoa are followed by abundant flavors of dark cherry and a hint of spice. The soft, mouth-coating tannins are highlighted by the blend's juicy fruit core. - Winery ** SOLD OUT **
