2013 Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
California: Sonoma County: Knights Valley
Taddei's the day
Definition: intense, hardcore, without regard to consequences.
Operative favorite winemaker Chris Taddei of Super Sonoman fame) DEFINITELY went full send here. We imagine he overheard someone say “this is the biggest Cab ever!” and said; “hold my beer”. We’re talking monstrous, hulking ludicrously extracted Cabernet with no regard for any limits or restraint. Full send indeed. If that’s not your style, come back another day. But if full-throttle, pedal to the metal Cabernet – at over 50% OFF no less - is your thing, you’re in the right place.
Like wearing camouflage Crocs with a pair of jorts and a cut off t-shirt, making a wine like this takes a certain amount of bravado and confidence. But if you can pull it off you’re a legend and worthy of adoration. This is 100% Knight’s Valley Cabernet, from impossibly steep hillsides at 1,500’ elevation. Raised in 100% new French oak for 36 months, it’s just starting to come into its own. Every sip forces you to surrender all control and just enjoy the ride as the rush of blackberry jam, blueberry pie, lavish sweet oak wash over you.
Man, we haven’t even touched upon the price. Nowhere near the $100 retail…for you, today, a cool 51% OFF! Grab some and enjoy all the power and excitement of strapping yourself into a homemade rocket ship.
Only with zero risk of losing any limbs and 100% chance of a thrilling experience.
Black, deep, dark black with maybe some ruby-garnet if the light breaks through.
Blackberry, black cherry, stewed plums, cocoa and gunpowder, cigar box, leather.
The rush of blackberry jam, blueberry pie, lavish sweet oak wash over you.
Super long, every sip forces you to surrender all control and just enjoy the ride.
It can easily feed a hungry party, maybe with tons of meat on the side, not required.
