2010 Knights Bridge Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Magnum
Rocky volcanic soils characterize our mountain-side vineyard located on the southern boundary of the stunning Knights Valley AVA of Sonoma County. Our Cabernet Sauvignon is grown on a hillside block that enjoys bountiful sunshine and long, warm days interposed by early morning fog and cool late afternoon breezes.
The berries were fermented on their skins for 19 days to fully extract fruit, color, and tannin before being pressed off sweet to barrel where they completed fermentation. The wine was aged for 21 months in 70% new French Taransaud, Darnajou, and Sylvain barrels before being bottled unfined and unfiltered.
Aromas of blackberry, dried lavender, and cocoa powder are underscored by layers of baking spice, macerated blueberry, dried mint and wet stone. This broad-shouldered wine offers deep, plush flavors of dark fruit, cassis, and earthy chocolate as bright red fruit and brown spices wash through the long finish.
