Had it with capellini con funghi - nothing fancy, and for just a simple glass with a simple homemade dinner? Why not? Mouthfeel adds a touch of elegance and brightness. Medium-ish body, surprisingly complex, deep cherry-sh flavors. Silky tannin, just enough of a hint (as of yet, I don't like chewy wines).

For me the Knight's Valley is a dark ruby red, with moderate aroma, earthy, sticky, blackberry jam. It had a dry, medium body ,and the flavors we're amazing with a long finish. It was fantastic with a bolognese pulled from the freezer.

My 5-wine rating only applies to wines priced below $25. In that price range...this cab is awesome. A bit softer than some of the Cabs that come from the main Napa Valley further south of Knights Valley. Very lush and plush. Full bodied but a "velvety smoothness" that's quite unique. Might have to do with the slight bit of Merlot/Cab Franc/Syrah that tyically makes up about 5-8% of the blend. If you prefer Meritage over Cab...then this is your Cab. Not in the same class as Dominus or Opus, but better than many Cabs in the $35-$50 range. I can regularly find it for 16-19 dollars with shopping card discounts. Haven't tried the 2007 yet...but the 1998-2006 have never dissapointed me.

Nice plummy nose. Great mineral undertones. Despite the fruit its a very woody wine in which drying tannins dominate. Long finish and secondary flavors like tobacco come through.

Awesome wine! Deep ruby in the glass. Core of pure fruit. Elegant mouthfeel. Wonderful juicy, lasting fruit. - Tasted at Beringer Private Reserve Tasting at the Mandarin Oriental Las Vegas 4/5/10

AWESOME! Dark crimson in the glass. Super concentrated nose. Lush and beautiful fruit. Wonderfully integrated tannin. The fruit is lush and ripe and lingers long and pure. Very floral on the back end. Pleasant hints of spice on the finish. Some slight mint. - Tasted at Beringer Private Reserve Tasting at the Mandarin Oriental Las Vegas 4/5/10

Wine Enthusiast ReviewRated 91An appealing wine showing likeable softness and flashy flavors. The palate brings cassis, mocha, licorice, sweet tobacco, sage, Asian spice and smoky oak; finishes long and rich. Notable for its superb structure.Wine Tasting NotesThe 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.

The wine toasty oak vanilla cedar and smoky aromas accented by a pretty background of pink peppercorn cocoa and mint. Small amounts of Cabernet Franc and Petite Sirah were added for additional complexity. A full mouth of sweet zesty and rich black fruit is supported by nice bright acidity and ripe tannins

As the following note indicates, all of the 1997s possess denser, more opaque colors, riper fruit, and mote body, volume, and expressive personalities than their 1998 counterparts. The 1997 Knight's Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is an excellent introduction to Beringer's style. It offers black fruits, a touch of licorice and cedar, a supple texture, medium to full body, and a soft finish. Drink this delicious Cabernet during its first decade of life.

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.

Complex, with tasty currant, black cherry, mocha, vanilla and nutmeg flavors that are rich and deep, showing concentration and focus. Best from 2001 through 2009.

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.
