Only 268 cases were made of this perfect, 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Notes of Christmas fruitcake, cedar and truffles pack tightly against melted chocolate and camphor. The flavors are intense and uplifting, with a dusty, black cherry finish that won’t let go. While this is drinking well now, it will reward the patient over the next four to five decades. If you must pop one this year, get a second for the cellar.

Wine Advocate

The perfect 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon The Lark, is a limited production (268 cases) and a magnificent wine. It probably has 50 years of upside potential. The notes of melted chocolate, Christmas fruitcake, cr?me de cassis, cedar wood, truffles and camphor are all present in this wine of exceptional intensity, purity and a skyscraper-like mid-palate and finish. This is amazing wine that probably won’t hit its prime for a decade and last a good 40-50 years.
