Description

Details

WS 93 WA 90 Pts - According to Wine Spectator - "Delicate aromas of crushed dark berry, wilted rose, cedar and graphite fold over to the palate, where they are trim and structured. The firm acidity and tannins are complemented by a hint of fresh-crushed rock. Best from 2016 through 2028."

According to Robert Parker - "Even better than the regular Knights Valley cuvée is the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve from Knight’s Valley. It reveals more fudge, toast, licorice, blackberry and blackcurrant fruit, a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, impressive purity as well as a long finish. This is top-notch stuff that should drink well for 10-12 years."

Winemakers Notes - "The return of the  Beringer Knight’s Valley  Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2012. Beringer acquired Knights Valley vineyards in 1961, as the first winery to recognize the great potential of this region for growing Bordeaux varietals. The Knights Valley designation was first used on a Beringer label in 1974. Over the last five decades, the Beringer Knights Valley Cabernet has found many devoted followers. Winemaker Laurie Hook has worked the Knights Valley vineyards for two decades, watching the vineyards evolve and noting which blocks and rows are particularly unique. Using fruit from those prized blocks, Laurie has crafted the Knights Valley Reserve Cabernet, which provides the purest and most layered expression of the unique terroir." 14.9% ABV.

Ripe fruit loads of oak.
Loads of ripe black cherry, red currant fruit and cassis. Silky tannins with a moderate velvety finish with an ample amount of oak. Needs another 3 to 4 years of time in the cellar. Not sure yet, if this KVR warrants the more than double price tag as the regular Beringer Knights Valley.
