The Cabernet Sauvignon Knights Crown is a bold, powerful wine. Ample and broad, with tremendous depth, the is complex, nuanced and potent. Black cherry, menthol, licorice, chocolate and dark spice infuse the with tons of character. Dark and brooding, the will be even better in another few years' time. WE92

Wine Enthusiast

With smooth, rounded edges of dark cherry, black currant and dried herb, this is a well-made and nicely structured wine with a strong tannin profile and integrated use of oak. Robust in clove, black pepper and a pinch of tobacco, it finishes with length.

Similarly colored, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Knights Valley is a bigger, richer wine loaded with notions of chocolatey dark fruits, notes of loamy earth and cedar, medium to full body, and a charming, delicious, mouthfilling style. It's another outstanding wine from this team that has loads to love.
