Red Wine

Beringer Vineyards Beringer Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2005, California, United States: Located 17 miles northwest of the winery, this vineyard has volcanic, well-drained soils. The Knights Valley designation was first used on a Beringer label in 1974. By 1983, this area had won official recognition as a premier wine growing region in the form of its own American Viticulture Area designation. The wines were then aged in small French Nevers oak barrels for sixteen months. A paragon of balance, elegance and New World vitality. Lovely aromas of toasty oak, black pepper and black plums. A long finish. Pair with: filet mignon, venison, roast beef, caribou. Drink: 2008-2015. 352583 13% D 750 mL  $39.95 Score: 92/100. April 22, 2008 Favorite Red Wine.
