Larkmead 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

NVWE Notes: This knockout Cab offers a deeply concentrated, focused, fruity-floral, herbal-accented and attractively spicy nose where scents of Italian Maraschino cherry, cherry pit, pomegranate, red raspberry, rose, violet, mulling-spice and celery seed perch above foresty-minerally undertones. On the palate the flavors prove deeply concentrated and of chiseled focus and fine length, and they fan-out with great purity, in lockstep with the aromas. Certain to improve for another five years, it is likely to prove as long-lived as the 1960s era Beaulieu Reserve Cabernets that it so resembles.

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. VIRGINIE BOONE 11/1/2019

The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) is absolutely gorgeous. Fresh, perfumed and silky, the 2016 captures all of the most elegant qualities of the year. Crushed flowers, sweet red berries, mint, rose petal and spice notes are laced throughout in this subtle, gracious Cabernet Sauvignon. All the elements are simply in the right place. It is so great to see Larkmead's entry-level Cabernet capture all the potential it showed as a young barrel sample. Drink 2021 - 2036. Antonio Galloni Dec 2018

Wine Spectator 93 Points

A flicker of savory leads off, giving the raspberry, red currant and cherry compote flavors lift and direction. Ends with a bramble hint as the fruit plays out nicely. Shows range, with freshness taking the lead and some depth in reserve. Drink now through 2030. 3,029 cases made. Issue Oct 15, 2019 JM
