"This is very polished and extremely reserved. Medium-to full-bodied, cool and balanced. Lavender, dark fruit and a flavorful finish. Drink or hold."

"The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Knights Valley Reserve offers more purity as well as structure. A vineyard selection mostly from the southern end of the estate property in Knights Valley, its deep purple color is followed by classic cassis and blueberry fruits intermixed with hints of damp earth, violets, and subtle minerality. Its ripe and voluptuous on the palate, but has building structure, beautiful mid-palate depth, and a great finish. Its a beautiful wine that has two decades of longevity."
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 93
"The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Knights Valley (containing a 2 splash of Malbec) was aged for 15 months in 32 new French oak. Deep purple-black in color, it sings of crme de cassis, black cherries and black berry preserves with touches of camphor, dark chocolate and wood smoke. Full-bodied, firm and finely grained, the palate has loads of mineral accents with black fruit layers, finishing with a lively herbal lift."
Royally rich in purple hues, this highly concentrated, intensely flavored wine offers rich and deep, dark fruits with blueberries, black cherries, blackberry and cherry jam, accented with dark chocolate, herbs and cassis. Full-bodied, with fine grained tannins and distinctive oak notes, finishing with mineral accents and a lively lift.
Blend: 98 Cabernet Sauvignon, 2 Malbec
