2016 Knights Bridge Cabernet Sauvignon, Haggerty
Aromas of cassis, blackberry and forest floor are nicely framed by French oak notes of cedar and vanilla with an inner core of ripe fruit that will develop beautifully in this expansive wine.
This is a textbook example of Cabernet Sauvignon from the 2016 vintage, reminiscent of classic top-flight vintage Pauillac, in the mold of Latour or Pontet-Canet. Pushy aromas of cassis, blackberry and forest floor are nicely framed by French oak notes of cedar and talc. As the wine unfolds it reveals an inner core of ripe fruits that will propel this wine beautifully as it ages for twenty years or more. Most remarkable is just how delicious and accessible it is now in spite of its big, expansive framework. Pure cassis and classic oak flavors will resonate with any Cabernet enthusiast.
