About This Wine

Not all renditions of Cabernet Sauvignon are “big, oaky monsters.”

The “cult wines” that command $100-plus per bottle often fall into that category, as those who make them have their grapes picked with very high sugars (which equates with more alcohol) and then age their wines in new French oak barrels (imparting vanilla and spice notes to the flavor).

We’re not putting those wines down. In fact, we love them (on those rare occasions when we get to taste them). While “cult Cabs” are mouth-filling and memorable, one thing they are not is food-friendly. They’re meant to be sipped and spoken of in hushed tones, not slurped down with a hamburger.

But thanks to wineries such as Knoll Haven, we can have our Cabernet and burger, too. Made in a style that emphasizes the fruit flavors of the grapes, rather than the non-fruit flavors of the oak, the 2009 Knoll Haven Cabernet is a food lover’s dream.

About Cabernet Sauvignon

Deep color and richness with the potential to age a long time, and better still if aged in oak before bottling. Classic flavors blackcurrant, plum, cherry and spice. The most popular varietal of red wine in America.

    I do enjoy Cabernet Sauvignon wines as a principal. The taste of this wine was smooth and did not overwhelm any of my dishes. If possible, I would reorder this one.

    Light with cherry notes. Little to no oak for a cabernet.
