This is an outstanding value in Cabernet. A blend of 91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Malbec, and 1% Cabernet Franc.  Knight's Valley really seems to be one of the better places in Sonoma to be growing Cabernet.  Purple in color, shiny and bright.  The nose has cassis, slight cedar and char.  On the palate, this seems at or close to maturity.  It has developed into a total package and not just parts.  A nice complexity.  Juicy fruit.  Black cherries and black raspberries with some underlying minerality.  Nice finish.  Hard to beat this wine for the price.  It should drink well for the  next five to seven years.  A great wine with a steak.
