Story: This might be one of the very best Cabernets to come from Knight’s Valley (better than Peter Michael, really!)  The venture is owned by Norma Hunt (wife of the late Kansas City Chiefs Lamar Hunt – who pretty much invented the Super Bowl).  This gorgeous property is well-situated, and when you bring in the Quarterback – Wide Receiver duo of wine (Philippe Melka and Jim Barbour), you can only achieve one thing – SUPERBOWL-like fame with the accompanying quality.

The Wine: Only 400 cases of the 2014 PERFECT SEASON Cabernetwere produced, so it won’t be around for a long time.  This 100% Estate Grown Cabernet is well-crafted and offers up amazing aromas of red and black stone fruits, a hint of chocolate and a whiff of spice cabinet as I call it.  Amazing, voluptuous body that is loaded with intense concentrated, yet very well-manicured and balanced fruit.  More black stone and espresso / mocha on the mid-palate merging into a long lasting lingering finish of elegant tannins.  A MUST HAVE!

 

Parker 96 Points: “The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon stays 18 months in 78% new French oak prior to being bottled unfiltered. It is a beautiful Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, with scorched earth and charcoal/barbecue smoke intermixed with crème de cassis, blackberry,espresso and maybe a hint of chocolate. A wine of exceptional intensity and purity, this full bodied, opulent wine is round, savory and generous. It is ideal for drinking over the next 15 - 20 years.”
