Beringer Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Knights Valley|
The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon (Knights Valley) is powerful, dense and wonderfully rich, with tons of the savory and mineral inflections that make Knights Valley Cabernets so alluring. This mineral character helps to play off the natural radiance of the year. Graphite, game, menthol, licorice and red fruit are front and center. In this vintage, the wine has a bit more suppleness and red fruit than it usually does.
Soft and generous in feel, with creamed blackberry and black cherry fruit gliding along, laced with toast notes and backed by embers of grilled savory on the finish. Drink now through 2024. 82,750 cases made.
Blackcurrants, blackberries, cedary spice, graphite, and chocolate notes all emerge from the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon, a delicious, medium-bodied effort that has sweet tannins and a charming, fun style. Based on a blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, and 1% Petite Verdot, brought up in 27% new French oak, drink bottles over the coming 4-6 years.
