Larkmead Vineyards Cabernet-Syrah Blend Napa Valley Meadowlark Cellars 2005
*Free Shipping for Case Purchase* Winemaker Notes: 100% Estate grown fruit at Larkmead Vineyards 73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Syrah Barrel aged 17 months in 20% new American oak Opens with a luscious nose. At its sweet fruit core is a bramble of raspberry and black fruits circled by Syrah's violet aromatic edge. As the wine develops, it presents a hint of coffee bean and smoke and an intense finish of cedar and a touch of toast. Similar to the nose, this wine offers a generous amount of ripe, sweet fruit on the palate. It's marked with a broad mouth-feel and voluptuous, smooth tannins that make the wine very approachable at an early age. The wine offers bright acidity, classic Larkmead mineral character and a long peppery (Syrah dominant) finish. This wine shows strong vineyard character despite the unusual variety mix. Drink now or age up to 5 years.
Dynamite! The luscious, deep, dark wine I thought it would be with a ton of cranberry, blackberry and maybe a hint of mocha. Kicked some serious ass with my bouillabaisse.
Great example of a blend - wonderful deep, smooth flavors. Can't go wrong w/ this one.
