This Week’s Friday Wine Down
Single Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon
Knights Valley, Sonoma County
About This Wine
Peregrine falcons guard the hilltop vineyard in this remote corner of Sonoma, the origin of our opulent Cabernet Sauvignon made in partnership with Delectus Winery. Perched above the fog line, the warm and dry climate of Knights Valley creates a terroir that is ideal for producing Cabernets of epic distinction.
With a dark red-violet hue, One Fell Swoop opens with aromas of cherries and earth, light oak and vanilla. Powerful flavors of juicy black fruits expand across the palate, finishing with notes of cedar, graphite and tobacco. Balanced and beautifully structured, this is a bold expression of Knights Valley Cabernet.
Decanting & Cellaring
It is recommended that this Cabernet is decanted for an hour before enjoying. One Fell Swoop has an aging potential of 30+ years.
This juicy Cab makes the perfect partner for rich entrées such as veal in a demi-glace, roasted vegetables with garlicky butter and aged cow’s milk cheeses.
