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.

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.
