90+ Robert Parker
The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Latro from Knights Valley exhibits a more opaque purple color as well as more meaty characteristics intermixed with blackberry and cassis fruit. This unfined and unfiltered 100% Cabernet Sauvignon spent 19 months in 50% new French oak. Coffee bean, lead pencil shavings, chocolate, forest floor, underbrush and blackcurrant notes emerge from this medium to full-bodied, plump, supple Cabernet. Consume it now and over the next 10-15 years.
