Knights Bridge Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Knights Valley|
Opulent in toasted oak and dark cherry, this wine is well integrated, structured and lengthy, with elements of clove, dried herb and cedar adding nuance. An accent of sweet tobacco enters on the midpalate, as the wine develops further texture and depth.
Deep ruby-purple, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon has a classic nose of crème de cassis, cedar, leather, cigar box, pencil lead, cocoa and black cherries with notes of savory herbs, exotic spices and red cherries. Medium to full-bodied, it's plush and giving in the mouth, with grainy tannins and just enough juicy acidity, finishing long on a mineral note. 210 cases produced.
This offers tasty dark fig and boysenberry puree flavors laced with a seductive mocha hint, showing polish on the toasty finish. A bit reliant on toast in the end though. Drink now through 2021. 210 cases made.
