Larkmead 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon
Napa Valley California
Wine Advocate 92 Rating
A blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon and 14% Petit Verdot, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is a dead-ringer for a first or second growth Pauillac. Aromas of spring flowers, creme de cassis, licorice, cedarwood and lead pencil shavings are followed by a wine with that wonderful sweet fruit that the French call sucrosite, which is an impression of sweetness even though the wine is totally dry. A superb texture, stunning purity and a full-bodied, blockbuster finish make for a wine that should be reasonably drinkable when released next year. It should age nicely for 20-25 years.
