Description

What Knockout Signifies: An intense, rich and impactful bottle of wine, Knockout will steal the show. This delectable wine gets its power and strength from a core of Petite Sirah which is spicy and intense in the glass, while the Cabernet Sauvignon adds finesse and grace. The uncommon pairing of intense and rich Petite Sirah with the plushness of Cabernet Sauvignon is a winning combination.
This wine is not discountable.
