The 2016 Dragon’s Back picks up where the 2015 left off.  Its once again floral, complex, and flat out just beautiful.  The 2016 utilized 75% new French oak which could have come off heavy handed, but this particular block in the vineyard handles it with ease.  The medium garnet color gives way to bouquet of rose petals and black tea.  Even on the nose there is a subtle creaminess with a hint of charred marshmallow.  The mélange of pomegranate and cranberry combine with a nice wet earth that culminate for a long finish.
Black Knight vineyards has so many micro climates with no two offering the same soil, elevation, or facing. The Dragon’s Back is the nickname of block P7 which runs along the spine of the Roger’s Creek fault. The ground is littered with softball sized volcanic rocks. This part of the vineyard is forced to persevere with less water, harsher soil, and no wind breaks. The results are glorious. 4 Barrels / 100 cases
