2007 Knights Bridge Estate Cabernet Sauvignon

Our estate Cabernet Sauvignon comes from two distinct blocks composed of three soil types: volcanic-ash tufa, ryolitic volcanic soils, and iron rich alluvials. Because of these rocky volcanic soils, the vines produce highly concentrated and intense fruit. The long growing season in 2007 allowed the grapes to develop complex flavors and soft tannins resulting in an outstanding wine.

A gorgeous bouquet of rich black cherry, baking spice, and currant interspersed with flavors of bitter-sweet chocolate, cedar, tobacco and sweet Madagascar vanilla.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Saturated ruby color with a tinge of purple, the wine reveals a gorgeous and intense bouquet of crème de cassis, violets and dried lavender, and ripe dark cherry – interspersed with nuances of bitter-sweet chocolate, cedar, tobacco, and sweet Madagascar vanilla. Very rich and full-bodied, this wine offers the same bold fruit impressions on the palate. The mouth feel is creamy, with gorgeous velvet tannins, which lead to a long finish.
Winemaker Notes
Clusters were destemmed and cold soaked for 24 hours before going through fermentation. The wine was aged in 100% French Oak for 21 months.
Food Pairing Notes
Enjoy with grilled meat with a blackberry infused demi-glace, California wild rice and grilled fall vegetables.
