Larkmead Cabernet Sauvignon Solari Reserve 2006

Member Review by rar8888:

This was one of three 2006 Napa cabs we opened for my 30th birthday. The other bottles were Sequoia Grove Rutherford Bench Reserve and Pride Mountain. All of the bottles decanted for three hours before serving. The Solari was deep ruby red in color with a nose that was full of cedar, smoke, and bright cherry. In the mouth this wine is extremely structured but velvety at the same time. In addition to the flavors from the nose I also tasted cola, green herbs and cassis. This is an extremely well balanced bottle of wine and is very impressive. This was the overall favorite of the night and my personal favorite as well. It is an expensive bottle but with the right company it is worth every penny.

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
