Product DescriptionJames Suckling Review
This is very focused with very fine tannins, giving texture and form to the wine. Blackberry, blueberry and chocolate undertones. Some rosemary and lavender undertones, as well as granite. Full to medium body, integrated tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Juicy. Drink or hold.
Wine Spectator Review
Sturdy and structured, with cedary oak evident in the aroma and palate, gaining depth and complexity. A good bet to gain from here. Best from 2020 through 2030.
Wine Advocate Review
Very deep inky-purple in color, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Knights Valley (92% Cabernet Sauvignon with 6% Malbec and 2% Petit Verdot) is scented of crushed blackcurrants, blackberry pie and mincemeat with nuances of baking spices, menthol, cedar box and tobacco leaf. Medium to full-bodied with great finesse and a solid foundation of grainy tannins, the muscular fruit yields youthful berry layers long into the finish. Drink 2017-2024.
Wine Tasting Notes
Richly colored in an inky purple hue, the wine offers aromas and flavors of dark fruits, featuring blackberry, currants, smoked meats and baking spices, with menthol and cedar cigar box notes accented by rich pipe tobacco. Trending toward full body with muscular tannins, the finish is long and lingering, with a dense texture that promises a long and rewarding life cycle.
