Larkmead- Cabernet Sauvignon-2016
The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon leads with an alluring
amount of spice and red fruit that sits atop a black soy
note and an earthy and loamy base. The aromas are warm
and inviting: a bit of leather and bittersweet chocolate
wrap around notes of purple flowers and the flesh of ripe
plums, graphite, and tobacco.
Bramble, earth, dried herb, red cherry and blackberries
are all interwoven on the palate. There is a succulent
amount of red and black fruit painted with a chocolate
coating. This is a timeless Cabernet Sauvignon that engages
your palate, finishing with a dry, dusty tannin that feels
like it is not born in the Napa Valley. The drying tannins
leave you desirous of a second sip.
