Larkmead Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Solari Reserve 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Great quality Cabernet Sauvignon year after year and drinking like a Pontet Canet in Pauillac Bordeaux. The deep creme de cassis flavors intermixed with charcoal and lead pencil shavings soar from the glass. Its full body stunning ripeness sweet tannin and substantial flavor authority make for a brilliant Cabernet Sauvignon to drink over the next decades.

Beautiful Cabernet, one that certainly mollified my concerns about the 08' vintage stacking up against 07'. I actually prefer this 08' Larkmead to the 07', as this is much more approachable, offering good purity of fruit with the classic larkmead tartness and minerality, and with the tannins showing themselves on the back end, but much more under control. Looking forward to seeing how this wine evolves over the years.
