2013 Latro Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Latro takes its name from the Latin word for “hunter,” a reference to Knights Valley’s history as a private hunting reserve before the development of vineyards in the area. Hard, inhospitable mountain soils restrict root development, which creates smaller berries and lower yields that bring distinctively mineral notes to this 100 percent Cabernet Sauvignon. The darkly handsome result is a charismatic and versatile wine with instant, irresistible appeal.
"The 2013 Galerie Knights Valley Latro Cabernet shows a dense purple color, almost opaque. Notes of ripe dark fruit, plum, juicy blackberries and dark chocolate introduce a nose that as it opens shows the signature of Knights Valley, mineral notes, graphite, truffles and wild herbs. The 2013 Latro has a rich midpalate, voluptuous ripe fruit flavors with muscular tannins promising a long life."
- Winemaker Laura Díaz Muñoz
This Cabernet’s forest-floor aromas are right in sync with the earthy flavor of farro and the woodsy mushrooms.
