2019 Beringer Reserve Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #5062093
Winery Notes- Dark violet with shimmering garnet color tones, the 2019 Knights Valley Reserve has a 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.

VINOUS RATING: 92
VINOUS REVIEW: The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Knights Valley Reserve emerges from a plot on the southern edge of the ranch, where soils are quite rocky. Inky, deep and full of richness, the Reserve has a lot to offer. Blueberry jam, chocolate, spice, licorice, gravel and menthol are all kicked up in this voluptuous Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.
JAMES SUCKLING RATING: 95
JAMES SUCKLING REVIEW: Aromas of black tea, blackberry and tobacco leaf. Full-bodied with velvety, slightly tense tannins. Lovely black-fruited palate with dried-flower and herb character. Roses, violets and sage. Nicely balanced and long. Lovely density in the center-palate.
ROBERT PARKER RATING: 93
ROBERT PARKER REVIEW: Beringer's 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Knights Valley starts off life as a block selection from the huge vineyard's rockiest parcel, then gets trimmed down further in the winery by winnowing out lots and barrels that don't quite make the cut. The result is a wine that boasts lovely Cabernet florals and pretty cassis fruit. It's bigger, richer and fuller-bodied than the regular KV bottling, more concentrated, but also smoother, silkier and longer on the finish. The affordable price tag and widespread availability (5,717 cases produced) should make this a steakhouse staple. Drink Date: 2023-2040
WINE ENTHUSIAST RATING: 95
WINE ENTHUSIAST REVIEW: Rich, softly tannic and saturated with black fruits, tobacco and dark chocolate, this full-bodied wine has a long life ahead. Ample flavors are gently but firmly held by fine-grained tannins that will need time to resolve and let more complexity shine through.
WINE SPECTATOR RATING: 94
WINE SPECTATOR REVIEW: Vibrant, with a nice burst of dark plum, boysenberry and blackberry preserves, this is clearly fruit-driven in style but subtle alder, sweet bay leaf, iron and violet hints peek in throughout, adding range and detail through the nicely structured finish.
