Knights Valley lives up to its name. This is a noble Cabernet that's well balanced, and free of any unpleasant side notes. The fruit aroma and palate are superb, and there's a hint of anise that completes the finish.

A little bit of dark fruit. Lots of herb, which I LOVE. And nice, rich woods like oak, juniper or cedar, and just a touch of vanilla. Sweet earth! MINERAL. I really love this cabernet. I suspect it has something to do with being grown in volcanic soils in Knights Valley. And the price (around $20) is great. This is my special treat wine that I get about once a month or so.

An 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.

The dark ruby/purple-tinged 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Knightrsquo;s Valley exhibits aromas of sweet black cherry and cassis fruit, chocolate, earth, and subtle smoky oak, medium to full body, and a seductive, round, silky texture. Enjoy it over the next decade.

Firm and tannic, with a concentrated beam of cedar- and tobacco-scented currant, plum and blackberry flavors that soften on the finish.

The pure, ripe, opulent 2000 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Knightrsquo;s Valley may turn out to be outstanding. It exhibits an opaque ruby/purple color as well as sweet black currant fruit intermixed with spice box, licorice, underbrush, and vanilla. Ed Sbragia told me there was no fog in 2000 in Knightrsquo;s Valley, and although it was relatively cool, he was pleased with what was produced.

Black currant richness expands beyond the tailored restraint of this wine's structure, giving a sense of elegance and generosity at once. The tannins have a crisp cut, the fruit plenty of juice. A pungent hint of tobacco and herbs places it with roast lamb.

An excellent, medium-weight California wine that's firm and ripe at a good price. Has a fleshy texture and spice, cedar, currant and mineral aromas and flavors. All its elements are smoothly shaped together, and it should continue to improve through 1999.

Winemaker Notes - To maintain the unique characteristics of the different lots from varying areas of the vineyard, Laurie kept them all separate through vinification and aging. Extended maceration created larger tannins to enhance the lush mouthfeel of the blend and extracted a maximum of color, aromas and flavors. The wines were then aged in small French Nevers oak barrels for roughly a year. After aging, Laurie blended the lots of Cabernet Sauvignon to highlight Knights Valley's characteristically bright black cherry fruit. A bit of Merlot was added to round out the mid-palate, and a touch of Cabernet Franc lifts the aromatics of the wine and delivers an elegant finish.

Winemaker's Notes:

A mouth full of fruit that is sweet, round and complex which is supported by nice acidity and supple ripe tannins, this Cabernet Sauvignon highlights Knights Valley’s characteristically bright cherry fruit and sweet vanilla oak and pie spice aromas.
