Larkmead Vineyards Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

$119.99

98 Points                                         A beautiful new Napa Valley Cabernet from boutique producer Larkmead! 98 Points Wine Enthusiast "Editor's Choice": "This stellar, powerhouse wine is perfumed in aromas of pencil, leather and sage that season a core of mineral and crushed rock. The fruit is equally savory in currant and plum, with a dusting of dark chocolate. Enjoy now -2029." 95 Points Jeb Dunnuck: "Moving to the barrel samples, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is a pretty, elegant wine that has perfumed notes of red and black currants, spring flowers, and spice. A blend of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Petit Verdot that was harvested early in September, it’s going to need short-term cellaring. It’s a beautiful base cuvee that does everything right." The historic Larkmead estate is one of the oldest family-owned establishments in Napa Valley. Originally founded in 1895, Larkmead is now under the stewardship of proprietors Cam and Kate Solari Baker. Winemaker Dan Petroski captures the nuance and complexity of this site by vinifying small lots according to clonal selection and soil type.

Dark red on the sight. Great nose: potent dark fruit, beautiful, with some vanilla notes. Full bodied, high tannings with velvet feel, very structured. Powerful wine.

Like this producer but, a note for all who see this, beware the 2017 Larkmead Estate. It was picked during the fires.
