Larkmead SOLARI 2014
There is uniqueness to Solari that cannot be found anywhere else on the Larkmead estate. The bouquet is almost dense, and builds with each swirl of the glass. From blackberry jam to purple flowers, the aromas swell slowly, drawing you in with their momentum. In the mouth the wine rumbles across the palate, like the engine of a train transferring its weight with each turn of the wheel. Macerated black cherries and cassis coat the sides of the mouth and as they fade, dried herb, graphite, gravel and cacao emerge, leaving you craving a second sip.
Wine SpectatorWell-proportioned, offering firm yet smooth-textured loamy earth, dark berry, mocha, dried herb and cedar flavors that make a statement. Balanced, with creamy oak. Best from 2018 through 2028. 793 cases made.
