Larkmead Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2019
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
This is structured, complex, dense and lengthy, a celebration of dark berry fruit that is layered and velvety smooth on the palate. Tobacco, oak and dried herb accent it with ease, complementing and contrasting in myriad ways and landing on a sophisticated finish.
The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) is vivid in the glass, with striking aromatics, beautifully sculpted fruit and impeccable balance. All the elements simply fall into place, wrapped by an embrace of firm, yet ripe tannins. I can't wait to see how the 2018 develops over the coming year. There is so much potential here.
Leads with light sage and alder accents, followed by gently steeped red and black currant fruit laced with licorice root and warm earth. Shows good juicy energy through the finish. Drink now through 2032. 1,696 cases made.
The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon sports a ruby/plum hue to go with medium to full-bodied aromas and flavors of dried herbs, loamy earth, chocolate, and tobacco, as well as both red and black fruits. It's another elegant, medium to full-bodied wine offering ripe tannins, good overall balance, and outstanding length.
