Wine Review: This pitch black colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Knights Valley opens with a mild black currant and blackberry bouquet with a hint of oak. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced and a bit rustic. The flavor profile is a cedar influenced black coffee with notes minerality and black olive. It closes with hints of blackberry. The finish is rather dry and its moderate tannins stick around for quite a while. This Cab would pair a grilled Colorado rack of lamb. Enjoy – Ken
Winemaker Notes: 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 mid-palate, voluptuous ripe fruit flavors with muscular tannins promising a long life.
