2014 Pelkan Vineyard, Cabernet Sauvignon, Family Collection, Knights Valley
The nose is velvety with rich notes of cinnamon, anise, molasses, and blackberry jam. There are also hints of clove and just a pinch of black pepper. The palate is equally as silky and opens with delicate notes of cherry and ripe raspberry. The wine grows on the palate showing its breadth and beautiful core which leads into a rich blackberry compote finish, complemented but the soft, fine tannin structure.
Located near the border of Napa and Sonoma Counties, this Cabernet fruit comes from the Pelkan Ranch Vineyard, also home to our Cabernet FRANCis. These Eastern facing vines sit on a sloped elevation of 1,000 feet, which provides excellent drainage, warm temperatures, ripe chocolate flavors that Knights Valley is known for.
