Composed of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and tiny amounts of Cabernet Franc Petit Verdot Merlot and Malbec from the Morley estate vineyard the 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Mon Chevalier may be the finest wine I have ever tasted from Knight's Valley. Aromas of white chocolate spring flowers licorice charcoal and black currants make for a provocative as well as intense aromatic display. With a voluptuous texture tremendous opulence sensational purity and depth this 2008 is slightly more evolved than the two Oakville offerings. Brilliant winemaking and meticulous attention to detail in the vineyard and winery have resulted in a prodigious effort. Drink it over the next 15-20 years.

Full ruby-red. Pungent mineral lift to the aromas of cassis and cola.

Pungent mineral lift to the aromas of cassis and cola. The supplest and sweetest of this trio of 2008s today but the least complex with a slightly grapey mountain intensity to its cassis dark chocolate and licorice flavors. Plenty ripe but the tannins here are less refined than those in Morlet's cabernets from Oakville. This cooler site enjoys long hang time notes Morlet.

Opens with sensuous lightly spicy aromas of cassis mocha and milk chocolate accented by touches of vanilla bean and mint. Very soft entry on the palate this is instantly pleasing with dense layered flavors unfolding with aeration. Finishes with long length and fine powdery tannins. Great stuff. Drink 2011-2020.
