2018 Beringer Cabernet Sauvignon Knights Valley

$29.95 $34.95

Approachable and delicious, this is a generous wine with soft, silky tannins and a plush, full mouth-feel. It may be built to age, but loads of juicy fruit make it extremely enjoyable already. Aromas of dried herbs, lavender and fresh boysenberry join flavors of dark fruit led by figs, black cherry, and currants. Oak spice notes join the traditional Knights Valley tones of black olive, sage and mocha in a well-balanced wine with a superbly elegant finish.

Over the past 141 years, Beringer has built its name on quality and consistency. The oldest continuously operating winery in Napa Valley (they used a federal license during Prohibition that allowed them to make wine for religious purposes), they’ve been instrumental in both the development of Napa’s international reputation while simultaneously serving as a critical link to its past.

James Suckling

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.
