Larkmead-Cabernet-Sauvignon-Napa-2015

Larkmead, Cabernet Sauvignon Napa, 2015

“Moving to the 2015s, the largest production cuvee from younger vines is the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon and it includes 3% Cabernet Franc and spent 18 months in 65% new French oak. Possessing terrific richness in its dark fruit, tobacco and Graves-like minerality, this beauty is full-bodied, concentrated and layered on the palate. It’s a beautiful base cuvee that does everything right.”
- Jeb Dunnuck (95 points)

“Larkmead’s deep garnet-purple colored 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon shows a meaty/earthy nose of charcuterie, underbrush, damp soil and mossy bark with a core of cassis, black plums and espresso. Concentrated and rich in the full-bodied mouth, the tannins are firm and chewy, and it finishes with great length and depth.”
- Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate (93 points)

“Blackberries with aromas of white peppers and chili peppers. Lavender undertones. Full-bodied, very tight and dense with a solid core of tannins and bright fruit. Savory at the end. A tile and terracotta finish. Drink or hold.”
- James Suckling (93 points)

“Larkmead’s 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is deep, inky and powerful, but with plenty of tannic backbone to back up the intensity of the fruit. There is plenty of potential here. This is a promising wine from Larkmead. Virtually all of the fruit for this wine was harvested in late August.”
- Antonio Galloni, Vinous (90-92 points)
