Beringer Cabernet Sauvignon Knights Valley, California, 2018
Mostly Cabernet Sauvignon with a classic bordeaux touch of Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot aged in French oak barrels (25 percent new) for 16 months.
This approachable and delicious Cabernet Sauvignon is a generous Bordeaux blend, with soft and silky tannins and a plush, full mouth-feel. Although this wine is built to age and develop further complexity, the generous and juicy upfront fruit makes it extremely enjoyable in its youth. Aromas of dried herbs, lavender, fresh boysenberry and lanolin join flavors of dark fruit led by figs, black cherry, and currants. The pronounced oak spice notes work well with the more traditional Knights Valley tones of black olive, wild sage and mocha. The wine is well-balanced with good acidity, structured tannins and a superbly elegant finish.
“The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon (Knights Valley) is a very elegant wine, especially for the appellation. Sweet cherry, mint, rose petal, gravel, licorice and orange peel give the 2018 soaring aromatic nuance. This gracious, mid-weight Cabernet has so much to offer.” - 91/100 Antonio Galloni, March 2021
“Aromas of fresh blackcurrants, dark chocolate, roasted coffee and tobacco. It’s medium-to full-bodied with firm, sleek tannins. Fresh and tight with a cool, stony finish." - 93/100 James Suckling, January 2021
Soft and generous in feel, with creamed blackberry and black cherry fruit gliding along, laced with toast notes and backed by embers of grilled savory on the finish. Drink now through 2024. 82,750 cases made." - 90/100 James Molesworth, November 2020
