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
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.
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.
Blassgelbe Farbe, frische Fruchtaromen, Äpfel, Ananas, Zitrusfrüchte und Orangenblüten, am Gaumen leicht geschmeidig, harmonisch und zugänglich.
The Beringer Founders' Estate Cabernet Sauvignon bursts with lush black fruit and intense cassis flavors that compliment the baking spice and vanilla aromas. Structured tannins and a long finish make this unmistakably a California Cabernet that can be enjoyed immediately. Pair this wine with anything from an elegant duck dish to hearty barbeque pork ribs - delicious. - Winery ** SOLD OUT **
Beringer’s 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon (Knights Valley) is endowed with serious minerality and tension. Firm tannins support an expressive core of dark red fruit, grilled herbs, asphalt and savory herbs, all of which come to life in a vibrant Cabernet Sauvignon long on personality and character. This is a serious wine for the money. Like so many wines in this vintage, it has tons of energy and vibrancy. If opened within the next few years, the 2010 is likely to require decanting to open up. The blend is 93% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc. Anticipated maturity: 2013–2020.
The 2010 Chardonnay Private Reserve is a pretty, racy Chardonnay with excellent varietal character and a round, polished personality. Attractive hints of toastiness and vanillin linger on the finish. The Private Reserve was aged in French oak barrels (69% new), with full malolactic fermentation. Anticipated maturity: 2011andndash;2013.
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.
