    Winemaker's Notes:

    A lush, intense-cherry, blackberry core is given by the 76% Merlot, while the 15% Cabernet Sauvignon gives structure and adds depth to the dark fruit aromas and flavors. Small amounts of Malbec, Petite Verdot and Cabernet Franc contribute spice, orange zest, roasted coffee, and fruit nuances to the palate, giving an overall impression of plushness and depth.

    Beringer has owned and farmed its Knights Valley vineyards since the mid-1960's, when the Beringer family recognized that the cobbley, rocky alluvial soils were a great place to grow high quality wine grapes. In the late 1980's, when phylloxera necessitated replanting, Beringer's vineyard manager Bob Steinhauer took advantage of the opportunity and replanted almost exclusively Bordeaux varietals that matched Knights Valley's soil and climate conditions.
