Francis Ford Coppola Reserve Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2007
Knights Valley is one of the warmest of the Sonoma County sub-appellations, making it an ideal location for Bordeaux varietals such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot. Located at the base of the Mayacamas Mountains, the range that separates Sonoma from the Napa Valley, Knights Valley is comprised of warm, fertile volcanic soils that have excellent drainage and produce low yields. The 2007 vintage was a winemaker’s dream, and, quite possibly, the vintage of a lifetime. An unusually dry winter gave way to a warm, dry spring, which significantly reduced the crop size. Conditions such as these typically produce very highly concentrated grapes. And because there were no heat waves during the summer months, the fruit matured slowly and evenly, making it a perfect vintage for us. Our 2007 Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon delivers the decadent scent of crushed raspberries draped over chocolate soufflé and dark, rich flavors of cassis, cherries, cloves, and vanilla toasted oak.
