ABOUT THE WINE

Linked Vineyards is the true embodiment of small batch Sonoma County luxury wine. In fact, this five case lot will equal five percent of Linked Vineyards’ total production! Founded by the Link Family in 2000 as a place to build a family legacy, Linked Vineyards offers ultra-exclusive, handcrafted Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon to discerning collectors. Renowned Winemaker Luc Morlet oversees every aspect of every lot, from hand picking to hand sorting. And this meticulous, gentle attention results in wines of extraordinary elegance.

Every step of the winemaking process is thoughtful and deliberate. The complete fermentation of this lot was done in French oak puncheons, allowing the early integration of oak and grapes. Luc’s delicate approach to the entire process allows the terroir of both this amazing vineyard and Knights Valley to emerge in the wine. Each sip is a well-orchestrated progression of dark berries, chocolate, black tea and toasted brioche.
