Larkmead Vineyards Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

$119.99

97 Points Parker                                             A beautiful new Napa Valley Cabernet from boutique producer Larkmead! 97 Points Wine Enthusiast "Cellar Selection": "With a tiny 3% addition of Cabernet Franc, this wine is defined by aromas of violet and crushed rock. Oak, clove and graphite dot a landscape of bold structure on the palate, with bright acidity balancing the concentration and grip. Enjoy 2025 - 2030." 95 Points Jeb Dunnuck:  "Moving to the 2015s, the largest production cuvee from younger vines is the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon and it includes 3% Cabernet Franc and spent 18 months in 65% new French oak. Possessing terrific richness in its dark fruit, tobacco and Graves-like minerality, this beauty is full-bodied, concentrated and layered on the palate. It’s a beautiful base cuvee that does everything right."

See my prior notes. Outstanding presentation. This will hang around for a few more years, too.

See my prior notes for the detail. More of a restrained Napa cab, which I appreciate. Excellent mid palate detail helps to deliver a more in-depth tasting experience. This is a top draw domestic cab.

Pungent nose of blueberry jam, laced with nutmeg and cinnamon. The mid-palate is defined by its robust tannic structure. The detail of the presentation is the main feature of this wine. It’s chiseled and possesses good depth. It brings a lovely black fruit profile, coupled with a persistent finish. This has runway ahead of it.

A feminine Napa Cab, if such a thing is possible. Flavorful and polished, without big weight or over extraction. Dark fruit, medium-long finish.

Dark color with nose of dark fruit, body full with tannic backbone, could use more bottle time but opened up over a 2 hour time frame.
