2018 Larkmead Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml
Winery Notes- The aromas, flavors and textures cast a wide reach on the nose and palate. From lavender and violets to Fuji apples and the bramble of a raspberry bush, the aromas are masterfully sewn together. As you linger with the wine in the glass and expose it to air, the wine leans deeper into the darker aromas of kirsch and graphite. In the mouth, the flavors flow from the candied sweetness of chocolate covered cherries and red licorice on the front of the palate to macerated blueberries and blackberries on the middle of your tongue. It finishes with spicy, dried herbs and savory roasted meats on the back of the palate. As the overall juiciness of the wine dissipates in your mouth, it leaves a gentle dusting of cherry-flavored tannins that coat the palate and prepare you for a second sip.

DECANTER MAGAZINE REVIEW: Very savoury and spice-laden on the nose, showing aromas of cigar box, chicory, sandalwood and redcurrants. The palate is beautifully multidimensional: deep but bright, weighty and forward but with great length and integration. A definitive showing of Calistoga, built for at least two decades in the cellar but will also reward those who want to check in at an earlier stage. Brought up in 66% new French oak.
JAMES SUCKLING REVIEW: Pretty aromas of currants, walnuts and fresh tobacco follow through to a full-bodied palate with dusty, chewy tannins and lots of berry, coffee and lightly toasted-oak undertones in the aftertaste. Needs some time to resolve the tannins. Very drinkable now, but better after 2025.
