We offer you a unique opportunity, today, dear Operative!

It is our great pleasure to present to you one of the best Sonoma County Cabernets in recent memory. In fact, today’s Super Sonoman 2008 Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon gives finer big Napa Cabs a run for their money.

Today’s wine has layer upon layer of aromas and the sort of concentrated flavors that fans of rich and complex Cabernet Sauvignon enjoy. If you love elegant, balanced, rich Cabernets, you’ll probably go crazy for today’s very highly recommended Super Sonoman.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Deep, foreboding, almost midnight plum at its heart, with an ever so slightly lighter ruby edge.

Smell:

Lush and rich, with deep aromas of black cherry, plum, and black currant balanced against cherry tobacco, cedar wood, clove, hibiscus, and violet.

Taste:

Bold, yet entirely well balanced and refined, leading with concentrated fruit flavors of plum, blackberry, and black cherry. These deep fruity notes are balanced by flavors of espresso bean, aged cigar box, dark baking spices, pomegranate herbal tea, and just a slight hint of cocoa powder.

Finish:

Super rich and long lasting, the finish is well structured, with integrated, almost velvety tannins. The sweet dark fruit lingers and lingers, finally giving way to earth and spice, leaving you with just a faint hint of cracked black peppercorn.

Pairing:

A roast leg of lamb, prepared with a Greek herbal rub of oregano, rosemary, and garlic.
