"A barrel sample composed of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Petit Verdot, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon (White Label) is deep garnet-purple in color with intense notes of crushed blackberries, wild blueberries and warm plums with touches of bay leaves and pencil shavings. Medium to full-bodied with a firm frame of chewy tannins and just enough freshness, it sports bags of black fruit and a minty lift on the long finish. 3,096 cases are expected to be made." -Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Advocate (92 - 94 Points)

94 pts James Suckling

Dense and fruity with lovely, layered tannins and lots of blueberries, blackberries and hints of dried flowers. Full body, dusty, gritty tannins and a flavorful finish. Chewy, yet will come around with two or three years of bottle age. Drink after 2022.

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.

93 pts Wine Spectator

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.
