Tasting Notes

Dark violet with shimmering garnet color tones, the 2020 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.

Scores & Accolades

  • 94
    “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.” - Jim Gordon, Wine Enthusiast

Winemaking

We select only the finest wines from our Knight’s Valley Estate to make our Reserve. Knights Valley Reserve is a vineyard block selection followed by an individual barrel selection. To maintain the unique characteristics of the different lots from varying areas of the vineyard, they are kept separate through vinification and aging, and only the most expressive are chosen for this Reserve bottling. Extended maceration created more dominant tannins, enhancing the lush mouthfeel of the blend while extracting a maximum of color, aromas, and flavors. The 100% Cabernet Sauvignon wine was aged in small French Nevers oak barrels (74% percent new) for 18 months, enhancing the rich mouthfeel and structure.

Vineyard

Located in a remote and bucolic location in Sonoma County just 17 miles north of the Beringer Napa winery, Knights Valley lies in the shadow of Mount St. Helena with hilly terrain that descends to rocky, alluvial soils where ancient rivers once ran. Warm during the day, cool at night, this well-draining site produces bold and richly structured reds with intense dark fruit.
