Natalie's Score: 92/100
Great structure through the mid-palate with a long finish. Classic styling on this Californian Cabernet. A towering, blockbuster Californian Cabernet with aromas of cassis, blackcurrant and plum. Finishes with dark spice and blackberry. Pair with rare cuts of meat.
Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: hearty meat dish, chicken, braised lamb.

|Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
A rich and powerful Cabernet Sauvignon by Rodney Strong but you wouldn't know it just by nosing it. This red pours with mild to moderate floral and spice aromas. After moments in the glass, it does open up. The palate is full bodied with loads of juicy black fleshy fruit, dried dates, developing tannins, high acid, loads of spice notes and a long mouthwatering finish. Enjoy with grilled steak and gourmet beef burgers. Tasted April 2017 by @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca

Well if you like powerful California CS's. with lots and lots of oak this is it. No more extensive tasting notes come to me. Nothing more - nothing less.
|This is a blockbuster from California's Rodney Strong. Knights Valley (2014) is a Cabernet Sauvignon with cassis, blackcurrant, plum, cardamom and cracked pepper on the nose and palate. The Knights Valley is the easternmost, and one of the warmest, of Sonoma's AVAs. Separated from the Pacific by the Coastal Ranges and the Mayacamas Mountains this area does not experience any of the cooling fogs and breezes for which much of Sonoma is known. Hence, ripe, intense flavours from the Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Zinfandel and Syrah grown there. - Community Wine Reviews|
