Beringer acquired Knights Valley vineyards in 1961, as the first winery to recognize the great potential of this region for growing Bordeaux varietals. Over the last five decades, the Beringer Knights Valley Cabernet has found many devoted followers. Winemaker Laurie Hook has worked the Knights Valley vineyards for two decades, watching the vineyards evolve and noting which blocks and rows are particularly unique. Using fruit from those prized blocks, Laurie has crafted the Knights Valley Reserve Cabernet, which provides the purest and most layered expression of the unique terroir found in Knights Valley.

"The 2012 vintage began with textbook conditions that continued through much of Harvest. Spring bud break was ideal with steady flowering and even fruit set. A lengthy stretch of warm days and cool nights during the summer months allowed for optimal ripeness to develop in the grapes and an exceptional quality overall. Late and light rains held off until the grapes found ripeness, bringing exceptional quality to the crush. Located 17 miles northwest of the winery, Knights Valley vineyard is approximately 600 acres, and has rocky, welldrained soils that are perfectly suited to Cabernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Grapes for the 2012 Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon were harvested between October 4th through October 26th."
