Harris Teeter in Apex carries this. Very smooth and easy to drink. — 25 days ago

Galante Vineyards

Blackjack Pasture Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

Green and black pepper, stewed dark fruit, leather, and black tea. The 2007 is smooth and well blended, but may be on the backside of its aging apex, with a bit more oxidation and a bit less tart fruit and acid than I’ve tasted in the past. Still a great wine. — 3 months ago

Cuvée Réserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

This is K&L’s private label. I believe they either purchase the wine and don’t disclose the winery or they purchase the fruit and have it made under their label. They gave a pretty big clue on this one...the property is owned by the first winemaker to score 100 points on a Napa cabernet from Robert Parker (the research is easy, look it up!). At $20-25 on release, holding this for a few years yields a great QPR.

At 10yrs, this is probably drinking at its apex. Nicely integrated...smooth and round. Fruit is still the main focus, but the oak is in the background and it is certainly not dense or heavy. Aromatically, it’s showing red, blue and black fruits. Dark cocoa dusted dates, cedar and a hint of smoked meats. On the palate, it’s fairly light revealing a mix of sweet and spiced fruits...peppercorn covered rhubarb pie, baking spices, holiday fruit cake, violets and freshly squeezed black cherries. Enjoy now or hold for 2-3 more years. My thanks to
@David T for the bottle, and introducing me to this label and the story behind it.

This was at its apex. Sooo good. It came as part of a cellar I acquired recently and it developed beautifully over an hour. Totally Margaux! It has perfume, clay and lots of lift. Still textured and lively fruit. Only subtle secondary notes but everything is in the right place. If I had a case I would drink it all this year. Wonderful wine — a year ago
