This southwest-facing vineyard yields Cabernet Sauvignon with a deep purple hue and an exotic, vibrantly fruit-forward style. Although very singular in style, it is still very characteristic of the Knights Valley region, offering violet, ripe blackberry, and fig on the nose along with the famed cocoa dust tannins. The 32 months barrel aging refines the texture, offering firm tannins and well-defined structure. Its explosive finish concludes with a spiciness that lingers, leaving your palate begging for one more sip.
