Beringer Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 is a polished, powerful red wine.
The Beringer family were early exponents of Knights Valley, one of Sonoma County’s original sub-regions. Named an AVA (American Viticultural Area) in 1983, this warm and sunny valley provides an exceptional climate for late-ripening Cabernet Sauvignon. Beringer bought their Knights Valley vineyards in the 1960s, and sustainably farmed, mature vines account for the potency in this aristocratic Cab. It’s got classic blackcurrant fruit, layered with dark chocolate, mocha, sweet dried herbs and a supple, silky finish. Cab’s muscular tannins ripen to polished perfection in this warm valley, making this a mouth-coating, powerful wine that drinks wonderfully now, but will develop for the next decade in the bottle. Serve in a large-bowled glass with a prime cut of beef, or after dinner with aged hard cheese.
