Each vintage since our 2007 'Inaugural' demonstrates the unique character of the site - the mountain setting at 1500 feet and the volcanic soils on the side of Mt. St. Helena. All of our wine is made at the state-of-the-art facility at Vineyard 29 under the watchful eye of our winemaker Keith Emerson. Keith continues to build his acclaim with such labels as Vineyard 29, Robert Craig, Gundlach Bundschu, and, of course, his own labels Emerson Brown and Sonria.
Our current release, the 2011 Reserve, was reviewed in Vinous, November 2013:
“The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Knighton Family Vineyards Reserve is surprisingly accessible. In this vintage, the Reserve is silky and refined in its personality, but there is plenty of underlying structure for the wine to drink well for a number of years. Leather, smoke, tobacco and iron all add complexity. The 2011 doesn't have the fruit density or depth of the 2010, but it is quite beautiful all the same. The 2011 is 98% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Petit Verdot.” Drinking Window 2015-2031. Rating: 91

Review by The Wine Advocate
Our goal is produce nothing but the finest wine the vineyards can produce. Quality is our utmost concern - not quantity. We determine our offering inventory totally dependent upon the quality we can achieve but don't plan more than 150 cases in the foreseeable future. Our first priority is to reserve wine for those loyal customers that have purchased it in the past and members of our wine mailing list. Due to the limited amount of wine we reserve the ability to limit the amount any one customer can purchase.
