Beringer Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Hard-fighting knights of yore would enjoy the powerful tannins and deep cedar flavor of Beringer Cabernet Knights, which rings true with the barreled wines of old. It is a manly wine, with manly flavors of crushed berry, fermented wilted-rose petals, graphite and rocky river ravine. Drink it only with boldly-flavored red meat and potatoes, unless you are brave enough to drink and savor it by itself.
This crowd-pleasing Cabernet Sauvignon is a beautiful Bordeaux blend, with soft, round tannins and a plush, rich mouthfeel. Built to age and develop further complexity, the wine in its youth is ripe and juicy upfront with aromas of fresh boysenberry, blackberry, and cassis, alongside dark berry fruit notes of fig, black cherry cola, and currants. The warm baking spice notes from the oak-integration work well with the more traditional Knights Valley tones of lavender, wild sage, and mocha. Lively and well-balanced with vibrant acidity, chewy tannins, and a long, smooth, satisfying finish.
