Editorial Reviews for Beringer Cabernet Sauvignon Knights Valley
Dark fruit accented with lightly stemmy olive notes greets the nose, followed by a smoky top note over a nice base note of sweet bramble and blackberry fruit with slightly leathery accents. This is silky with slightly chalky tannins that offer nice cut on the palate. There’s a lot of fruit here, pretty purplish fruit with nice cranberry edges that leads to deep blackcurrant and blackberry flavors that are nicely bright on the palate and framed with spice and mocha accents. With time, this turns fairly tannic, very clean and fresh, with a moderately long finish that turns a touch pasty on the finale with just a little wood tannins sticking out. Medium full-bodied and smooth yet faceted, this is a safe bet to please a lot of people. 90 points
Kind of a "yeasty"/herbal nose. Maybe, even, some mint. Quite straightforward on the front of the palate. Medium-to-full bodied. Cassis/blueberry fruit. Tannins kind of sneak up on you--at first you don't notice them. Then, oh yeah, there they are. I like the tannin, and while I don't think this will age to a great wine, it could be laid down for a couple years. US$18.99 at Costco in Chino Hills
Decent middle of the road chardonnary. Not a lot of anything in particular with this one, subtle oak, some good light citrus, but nothing to brag about.
This is a very smooth berry flavor Cabernet with flavors of vanilla, caramel and a bit of spice. Tannins are medium and the finish is wonderful.
Expressive nose of currant, cassis and some green notes along with hints of plum and pepper. Aromas also of grilled herbs, asphalt and savory notes. Energetic and vibrant on the palate with a nice, rich feel. Elegant structure with nice balance. Good integration of wood with the currant, cassis and vanilla flavors. Light hint of eucalyptus. Nice! 92 pts. 4/20/13
The 2008 Knights Valley Cabernet is a wine with some bite to it. Medium to slightly heavier in structure. Very fruit forward on the nose....Almost reminds me of the bouquet of an Oberon 2005 Merlot. Very nice! Cheers!
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)
External Reviews for Beringer Cabernet Sauvignon Knights Valley
The Beringer 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.
The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Knight’s Valley reveals a vegetal character that keeps my score from going higher. Medium-bodied with Asian plum sauce, black currants, cherries and loamy soil undertones, it is adequate, but uninspiring, no doubt because of the vintage.
Well-proportioned, this shows an edge of dried earth, herb and leather, with a vanilla bean accent to the dried berry notes. Very complete, but needs time. Drink now through 2022.
Blassgelbe Farbe, frische Fruchtaromen, Äpfel, Ananas, Zitrusfrüchte und Orangenblüten, am Gaumen leicht geschmeidig, harmonisch und zugänglich.
Goldgelbe Farbe, Aromen von Ananas, Mango und Zitrusfrüchten mit Noten die an Karamellbonbons erinnern. Am Gaumen körperreich, trocken mit lebendiger Säure, fruchtig, ausgewogen und anhaltend, sortentypisch und prägnant.
The 2010 Chardonnay offers good up-front fruit and an accessible, easygoing personality. Layers of tropical fruit, smoke and licorice wrap around the finish. About 60% of the wine was allowed to go through malolactic fermentation. Anticipated maturity: 2011–2013.
Good bright yellow. Deep aromas of apricot, pineapple, menthol and vanillin oak. Rich and creamy but with good acidity to frame the stone fruit flavors. Much more complex than the basic Napa Valley chardonnay but youthfully tight now and just starting to open. An elegant style in the context of this label.
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.
