2013 Knights Bridge Estate Cabernet Sauvignon

2013 Knights Bridge Estate Cabernet Sauvignon

Our Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is intense, complex and fresh. Alive on the nose with notes of cassis, blackberry, violets and cedar, the aromatics are mirrored in the mouth with soft tannins and exceptional length. Vibrant now, this is also a wine that will age for many years to come.

Suggested pairings include spice-rubbed leg of lamb with a traditional macaroni and cheese, or braised pork roast with a sauce of plum and caramelized onions served with mashed potatoes.

Coming on the heels of the revered 2012 vintage, the 2013 vintage is a strong successor. A warm dry spring led to an early bud-break and was followed by consistent, moderate temperatures throughout the growing season. With only one short heat spike mid-summer, our vines enjoyed near ideal conditions of warm days and cool nights, leading to lush, balanced fruit.

The 2013 vintage was harvested during the very early morning hours of October 4th. Arriving at the winery cold, the clusters were de-stemmed into stainless steel tanks and cold soaked for 24 hours before natural fermentation began. After two weeks of fermentation, the wine was pressed and then aged in 85% new French oak barrels, using a combination of Taransaud, Ermitage and Darnajou cooperage. The wine aged for 22 months in barrel and, once bottled, benefitted from another 15 months in our cellar.
