Checkerboard Kings Row Red 2009

#CHE09KR3 | 750mL

As the second wine to Checkerboard, I tend to really enjoy this wine and tasted this new offering at the end of March 2013 with owners Dennis O'Neil and Steph Martin. The '09 is better than the '08 because it has more structure and backbone to it. As in the past, winemaker Martha McClellan, also of Sloan Estate, produced the wine and the final blend is 94% Cabernet Sauvignon with 3% Merlot and 3% Petite Verdot. This winery has elevated Diamond Mountain to new heights in terms of quality. - Kerrin Laz, Wine Director
