This might be one of the very best Cabernets to come from Knight’s Valley (even better than Peter Michael, really!)  The venture is owned by Norma Hunt (wife of the late Kansas City Chiefs ownerLamar 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.

 

Tasting Notes: Only 250 cases of the PERFECT SEASON Cabernet were 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!

 

Robert Parker 97 Points: "The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon, ratchets up the level of intensity by a few points. It displays slightly blacker fruits, a tremendous purity and sucrosity of fruit, an unctuous texture, and a terrific finish with real character and personality. This should turn out to be a beauty and edge out its rival, the 2014. It should also drink well for at least 15-20 or more years. Both are great examples of viticulture in the up-an-coming Knights Valley."
