Beautiful bouquet of ripe black cherry and boysenberry, with touches of tea leaf, lavender, and fresh sage. The fruit is bright and lively, showing flavors of black currant, blackberries, and crème de cassis cordial, supported by warm spice notes of cinnamon, vanilla bean, and allspice. Velvety-rich in texture with fine-grained polished tannins and an elegant lengthy finish with concentrated, dense, dark fruit, accompanied by a precise tension and balance that pleases the palate from first sip to last.

A beautiful perfume of oak spices leads to intricate red, black and blue fruit flavors in this nicely layered, complex and complete wine. Cherries, blueberries, cinnamon, cedar and cocoa compete for attention while firm but fine-grained tannins lend a velvety texture. Best from 2026-2036.

Very pretty depth with a tile and rock-like texture to this. Minerally. Redcurrant. Medium to full body. Juicy finish. Needs two or three years to soften and come together.

I think this is first time we've rated a Knights Valley Reserve ahead of the Private Reserve. Selected from rockier bits of the vineyards, the 2020 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Knights Valley features aromas of black cherries and red raspberries, offering a vastly different and more interesting fruit profile than the regular Knights Valley bottling. Dark chocolate-mocha notes, vanilla and cedar bring additional complexity to the mix. This medium to full-bodied wine is ripe, plush and long on the finish, with two decades of deliciousness ahead of it.

The 2020 Cabernet Sauvignon Knights Valley reserve is a very beautiful wine in this vintage. Bright floral and mineral accents play off a core of intense, distinctly red-toned fruit. Best of all, the 2020 can be enjoyed with minimal cellaring. The strong savoriness of Knights Valley is not especially evident. I suspect that is mostly the function of a warm, dry growing season.
