2019 Larkmead Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
Winemaker Avery Heelan is a master of terroir, turning the finest grapes into a showcase of time and place. Pulling from all parts of the exceptional Larkmead estate, this Cabernet Sauvignon is a core interpretation of the voice of the property, with the whole chorus singing in harmony.
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.
This is structured, complex, dense and lengthy, a celebration of dark berry fruit that is ayered 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.
Currants and berries with flowers. Raspberries, too. Medium to full body with medium tannins and a juicy, fruity finish. Soft and delicious to drink now. Drink or hold.93VN
The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon is a gorgeous introduction to the vintage at Larkmead. Pliant and supple, the Cabernet offers tons of near term appeal. Sweet red cherry, red plum, pomegranate, spice and blood orange infuse the 2019 with layers of nuance and complexity. Best of all the 2019 will drink well with minimal cellaring. (AG)
