2012 Fall Release


Knights Bridge employs sustainable farming practices to keep the vines healthy and the yields low. Divided into individual blocks, the vineyards are hand-picked and sorted at harvest to bring out the unique characteristics of the vines.

2009 Knights Bridge Estate Cabernet Sauvignon

The most obvious trait of this 2009 Knights Bridge Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is its booming power and complexity. Aromas of black cherry, ripe macerated black raspberry, espresso, spice, and dried lavender bound from the glass and continue to reward through a dense, weighty palate. Plush layers of dusty mocha, dark sweet fruit, and cedar surge through a rich mid-palate and unfurl to an expansive finish. Well-integrated oak, fine-grained tannins and lifting acidity lend excellent structure and balance. Our biggest Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon to date, this wine will continue to evolve for a decade or more.

2009 Knights Bridge To Kalon Cabernet Sauvignon

The nose on our 2009 Knights Bridge To Kalon Cabernet Sauvignon is drenched in dark, ripe blackberry, blueberry, and violets. The quintessential To Kalon pedigree exposes itself on the palate with complex layers of creme de cassis, briar fruit, and spice box framed by well-integrated tannins. As big and rich as this wine is, it displays tremendous elegance and an almost supple quality. Generous tannins come across as smooth, dense and rich with a long, sweet finish. Accessible upon release, this wine will evolve gracefully for decades.

2009 Knights Bridge Dr. Crane Cabernet Sauvignon

The aromas of our 2009 Knights Bridge Dr. Crane Cabernet Sauvignon are loyal to its provenance with a cassis and black fruit core, mingled with stones and smoke. The length and very sweet tannins on this wine make it irresistible. Flavors of dark fruit, fresh-turned earth, smoked meats and tobacco cascade through the long, sleek finish that just seems to linger forever.
 

2008 Pont de Chevalier Cabernet Sauvignon

This impressive 2008 Pont de Chavelier Estate Cabernet Sauvignon was given an additional two years of bottle age so it would fully articulate the concentrated, complex and savory flavors of the vintage. The aromas slowly progress from lavender, cassis, and blackberry– bolstered by an underscore of sweet leather and espresso. The mid-palate delivers deep layers of concentrated fruit with a delicate interweaving of shaved dark cocao. The flavors float over buoyant acidity through a lingering finish of sweet yet ample tannins.  

 

2008 Pont de Chevalier To Kalon Cabernet Sauvignon

Our 2008 Pont de Chevalier To Kalon Cabernet Sauvignon possesses tremendous concentration and uncommon complexity, similar to a superb first-growth Pauillac. Symphonic aromas of violets, cassis and blueberry persist on a fleshy yet focused palate. The supple mouthfeel leads to a silky finish of dark chocolate, graphite and hazelnut. This wine will beckon you to drink it now but it will reward years of patient cellaring
