Moving to the top releases the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Mon Chevalier comes from Knights Valley and was brought up in puncheons. A gorgeous bouquet of sandalwood violets loamy earth and incense as well as some iron-laced black and blue fruits flow to a rounded supple incredibly textured Cabernet that has sweet tannins a stacked mid-palate and a great finish. It?s already terrific yet will keep for 20-25 years or more.


Wine Advocate: 96+ Points

The estate-grown 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Mon Chevalier is a blend of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon 4% Cabernet Franc 1% Malbec and 1% Petit Verdot. Very deep purple-black in color it charges forth with intense notes of crushed black cherries black berry preserves and cassis scents with touches of spearmint Indian spices espresso and dried lavender plus a waft of roses. Full-bodied the palate reveals incredible restraint slowly revealing earth and black fruit layers framed by firm grainy tannins and just enough freshness finishing very long and spicy. 750 cases produced to be released in the fall of 2019.
