The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Mon Chevalier bursts from the glass with smoke, scorched earth, tobacco, incense and dark plums. There is plenty of Knights Valley character in the glass, but at the same time the fruit is so pure and refined as to make the tannins much more polished than is often the case. The Mon Chevalier is another deep wine endowed with serious depth and power. Anticipated maturity: 2020–2030.

Saturated ruby. Blackberry, licorice, bitter chocolate and a hint of game on the nose. Large-scaled, plush and deep, with mouth-saturating flavors of blackberry and violet. This huge, broad, tactile wine finishes with outstanding toothcoating persistence and a restrained sweetness.

Good ruby-red. Highly complex, very sexy nose combines blackberry, blueberry, musky mocha and coffee bean and cigar box. Ripe and plush on the palate, if a bit less refined than the Coeur de Vallee, with strong menthol and chocolate notes currently in the foreground. A rather powerful, even youthfully astringent, cabernet whose slightly drying mountain tannins will require patience.
