The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is a textbook example of the variety, featuring bright, expressive aromas of cassis, damson plum, and cedar that open to reveal enticing baking spices and violets. It begins soft and generous with a rounded mouthfeel and persistent dark fruits, but maintains good tension and energy that resonates from front to back. A ripe, bold, assertive Cabernet that captures the quality of its vintage and the expression of its Knights Valley terroir. Ready to enjoy now, this wine possesses the structure to age gracefully through 2027 and beyond.
