2008 began with a cold winter, and a cool early spring with heavy rain storms. By mid-spring the rains stopped and weather warmed up nicely for bud-break. Summer was a little cooler than is typical, but heat in August and September matured the grapes beautifully, and the harvest was excellent. Our 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon, Knights Valley, has aromas of dark cherry, blackberry, sweet spices, and mocha. The flavors invoke the same, with a touch of black tea and dark chocolate on the finish. Drink over the next 3-5 years.

Vineyard Notes
Ehret Family's Bavarian Lion Vineyards have been in the family since the mid 1990's and showcase the best Knights Valley has to offer. The Knights Valley AVA is protected from the marine in?uence of the Pacific Ocean, making it the warmest AVA in Sonoma County. The vineyards on the estate range from 400-800 feet in elevation and are located just north of Calistoga and east of Alexander Valley, on the foothills of Mount St. Helena. The unique topography and soil content make this a most desirable area to grow Bordeaux and Northern Rhône grapes. The soil consists of well drained, very gravelly and sandy loams formed from mixed sedimentary and basic rock.
