2014 was another drought year, though the effects on Knights Valley were mostly beneficial. It was another early year throughout – early bud break, fruit set, veraison, and harvest - with a warm spring and hot summer. The evenings cooled off greatly, allowing for the grapes to ripen steadily. The early harvest produced a big crop of dense, charming, cellar-worthy wines including our 2014 Knights Raven Cabernet Franc Knights Valley. It is 100% Cabernet Franc, showcasing the grape and Knights Valley in the purest form. The wine is silky with a medium body, and has impressions of nutmeg, cranberry, dark cherry, fresh herbs, and gunpowder green tea.
