2009 Cabernet Sauvignon
2009 was a mild growing season in Knights Valley. Gentle spring rains set the stage for a long, temperate, warm summer. The even temperatures continued into August with our typical late summer heat wave in early October. The grapes in this wine were all handpicked from the rocky hillside of Bavarian Lion Vineyards. The slightly higher elevation combined with volcanic soils and warm sunny days create ideal conditions for growing the classic Old World varietals. Our 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon, Knights Valley, has aromas of dark cherry, blackberry, sweet spices, and mocha. The flavors invoke dark plum, blackberry, and sweet spices with a touch of black tea and dark chocolate on the finish. Drink over the next 3-6 years.
