Luc and Jodie's "Mon Chevalier" Cabernet Sauvignon comes from the family's vineyard in the foothills of Knights Valley. The vineyard benefits from its proximity to Mount St. Helena, whose warm and windy climate is ideal for the long ripening of the Bordeaux red varietals. The grapes are first sorted cluster by cluster, then berry by berry, ensuring that only the finest grapes go into the wine.

ROBERT PARKER 96+ POINTS - "The estate-grown 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Mon Chevalier is a blend of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Cabernet Franc, 1% Malbec and 1% Petit Verdot. Very deep purple-black in color, it charges forth with intense notes of crushed black cherries, black berry preserves and cassis scents with touches of spearmint, Indian spices, espresso and dried lavender plus a waft of roses. Full-bodied, the palate reveals incredible restraint, slowly revealing earth and black fruit layers framed by firm, grainy tannins and just enough freshness, finishing very long and spicy. 750 cases produced, to be released in the fall of 2019."

JEB DUNNUCK 96 POINTS - "Moving to the top releases, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Mon Chevalier comes from Knights Valley and was brought up in puncheons. A gorgeous bouquet of sandalwood, violets, loamy earth, and incense as well as some iron-laced black and blue fruits flow to a rounded, supple, incredibly textured Cabernet that has sweet tannins, a stacked mid-palate, and a great finish. It's already terrific yet will keep for 20-25 years or more."

ANTONIO GALLONI 94 POINTS - "The 2016 Mon Chevalier, from Luc and Jodie Morlet's Knights Valley property, is rich and powerful, yet also remains lights on its feet for such a big wine. Chocolate, spice, leather, black cherry, plum, and licorice add to the dark, virile personality. Still quite primary, Mon Chevalier has a ton of fruit intensity and fewer of the more savory notes that are typical of the appellation. The 2016 is built for cellaring, and it will need that time to shed baby fat and gain in aromatic complexity."
