The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon (Knights Valley) is powerful, dense and wonderfully rich, with tons of the savory and mineral inflections that make Knights Valley Cabernets so alluring. This mineral character helps to play off the natural radiance of the year. Graphite, game, menthol, licorice and red fruit are front and center. In this vintage, the wine has a bit more suppleness and red fruit than it usually does.

This sits in the redder-fruit zone for the variety and has sappy, leafy nuances with ferrous notes, too. The palate has a smooth array of juicy red and dark-fruit flavors and supple tannins, framed in sweet oak spice. Medium body. Drink now.
