Checkerboard Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Kings Row 2009
Varietal: Cabernet Savignon
Country: United States
ST - 93; Vineyard; in relative short time, it's become one of the more sought-after wines for collectors and consumers; made by famous winemaker Martha McClellan; What makes the Checkerboard wines rise above others at this price point is the shear intensity, harmony, balance, and individuality, along with that je ne sais quoi. We feel this wine is of the same quality as other superstars like Caymus Special Selection, Continuum, Dalla Valle, Lewis, or even Peter Michael.
The Kings Row bottling is a second wine of Checkerboard, but it is important to know that the vineyards are virtually the same as Checkerboard, and the wine is made with the same barrel program, oak treatment and aging. The only difference here is the blend, which is completed after the final blend is finished for Checkerboard
