This is a Gold Medal Wine Club Platinum Series selection. The Larkin 2005 Cabernet Franc follows a remarkable line-up of consecutive 90+ rated wines beginning with the first vintage in 1999. Awarded 92 Points by Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate, the 2005 Cabernet Franc embodies the masterful winemaking skills of Sean Larkin. Highly promoted by Robert Parker, “Larkin continues to demonstrate a brilliant touch with Cabernet Franc. The dark ruby, purple-tinged 2005 Cabernet Franc reveals this varietal’s intense fragrance of sweet cherries, raspberries, blueberries, bay leaf, and a hint of vanilla. Elegant in the mouth with impressive purity and fruit, medium body, and sweet, silky tannin, it can be enjoyed over the next decade.” The Larkin Cabernet Franc is nicely balanced and one that can easily pair with favorite lasagnas, chicken dishes, and even pizza. Aged in French oak. 75% Cabernet Franc, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, and 2% Petite Verdot. Enjoy now until 2015.

A rich nose of cherries, flowers, vanilla, and clove. Red cherries continue on the palate with black currant and hints of dried meat and earth. Nicely balanced wine with a soft, elegant finish. One to lay down.
