Ehret Family Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 2018, Knight’s Valley, CA

Regular Price $74.99

3 in stock

The Knight’s Valley is unknown to most, but it’s quietly where Sonoma’s best cabernet sauvignon grows.  The condition of the fruit is very Napa-esque, and rightfully so, as the vineyard is around the corner from Calistoga.  Everything about the climate is more similar to Napa than Sonoma.  The majority of the grapes are sold off to Napa producers that are allowed to blend in 25% of their final blend from outside Napa Valley.  This is why you almost never see “Knight’s Valley” on a wine label.

Winemaker Erin Green joined this project in 2015 and the wines improved dramatically (and we already liked them quite a bit!), far better than what you would see from Napa for $75.  Erin has also been responsible for making Pahlmeyer, Colgin, Bryant Family, and Martinelli Wines.  She is a Napa legend.

Enjoy now or hold for 10 years.  If you enjoy now, let this wine breathe for 5-6 hours and make sure to chill it back down to cellar temp.
