After skipping a vintage, the Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is back. Scents of rose petal, cocoa, mint, dark cherry, and raspberry float from the dark, inky, ruby-red body. The Knights Valley Cabernet has always shown a more robust tannin structure, and that is definitely still the case. The tannins are all encompassing, and along with higher acidity, work towards great balance and finesse vis-a-vis the strong notes of cherries, raspberries, leather, tobacco, vanilla, clove, and anise. The long finished is marked by a touch of dark chocolate and caramel which provide the perfect hint of sweetness. This is a Cabernet built for the long haul, best enjoyed after rigorous decanting or 5-15 years in the cellar.
