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. Read more

Editorial Reviews for 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
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!
External Reviews for Cabernet Sauvignon Knights Valley
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
Pale bright yellow. Peach and flowers on the nose. Round and peachy, with sound acidity and a refreshing hint of licorice. Slightly phenolic, edgy finish. Sixty percent of this wine went through malolactic fermentation.
Pure and clean, offering excellent fruit complexity, with wild berry, blueberry, spice and cedar flavors, firm tannins and good length. Drink now through 2018. -JL Wine Spectator. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2010 Beringer Cabernet Sauvignon Knights Valley 750ml
To maintain the unique characteristics of the different lots from varying areas of the vineyard, they were all separate through vinification and aging. Extended maceration extracted a maximum of color, aromas and flavors. The wines were then aged in
Knights Valley is a very special place for us at Beringer. As you drive over the mountain from St.Helena, the valley opens up before your eyes and you immediately feel transported to another time,where things are slower and more rustic. I always hope to do justice to the vineyard with this wine and I believe this has done so - it delivers great complexity and depth while still retaining a rough-hewn charm. It has a nice acidity, rich tannins, and a solid concentration of fruit.
Beringer Vineyards holds the distinction of being the oldest continuously operating winery in the Napa Valley. It is also one of the very few wineries that survived the draconian prohibition of 1922, which lasted over a decade. The estate is also in the National Register for Historic Places as a historic district, a status it has held since 2001.
Not yet reviewed; 2009 vintage rated 91 points by 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.
