Galerie is a collection of wines, crafted through the artistic and scientific sentiments of Winemaker Laura Diaz Munoz.

Laura gained a love of wine at home at the dinner table. Her father enjoyed exploring wines but found no one to share his passion until Laura discovered her own affection for wine. Her earliest memories are of aromatic Albariños and of smelling the sea in every glass. Laura initially studied food science but quickly declared her intention to work in vineyards and wineries.

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

95 Jeb Dunnuck -The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Latro is in the same ballpark yet has more savory characteristics as well as plenty of conifer, California bay leaf, currants, and loamy soil aromas and flavors. This full-bodied beauty has plenty of tannin, terrific purity of fruit, no hard edges, and a great finish. Give it a few years.
 
90 Wine Enthusiast - From several sites in the appellation, this 100% varietal wine is impressively taut and angular in style, with an herbaceous intensity. Made in a full-bodied lushness, it has generous toasted oak and a mix of concentrated red and black cherry.
