Notes From The Winemaker:
The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon leads with an alluring amount of spice and red fruit that sits atop a black soy note and an earthy and loamy base. The aromas are warm and inviting: a bit of leather and bittersweet chocolate wrap around notes of purple flowers and the flesh of ripe plums, graphite, and tobacco.

Bramble, earth, dried herb, red cherry and blackberries are all interwoven on the palate. There is a succulent amount of red and black fruit painted with a chocolate coating. This is a timeless Cabernet Sauvignon that engages your palate, finishing with a dry, dusty tannin that feels like it is not born in the Napa Valley. The drying tannins leave you desirous of a second sip.

Varietal Composition: 94% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Petit Verdot


Ratings & Reviews:

94 Points - James Suckling:
"Dense and fruity with lovely, layered tannins and lots of blueberries, blackberries and hints of dried flowers. Full body, dusty, gritty tannins and a flavorful finish. Chewy, yet will come around with two or three years of bottle age. Drink after 2022." - (9 Feb, 2019)

92-95 Points - Jeb Dunnuck:
"Moving to the barrel samples, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is a pretty, elegant wine that lacks the richness of the 2015 yet has perfumed notes of red and black currants, spring flowers, and spice. A blend of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Petit Verdot that was harvested early in September, it’s going to need short-term cellaring." - Jeb Dunuck (12/29/2017)

93 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous:
"The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) is absolutely gorgeous. Fresh, perfumed and silky, the 2016 captures all of the most elegant qualities of the year. Crushed flowers, sweet red berries, mint, rose petal and spice notes are laced throughout in this subtle, gracious Cabernet Sauvignon. All the elements are simply in the right place. It is so great to see Larkmead's entry-level Cabernet capture all the potential it showed as a young barrel sample." - Antonio Galloni (October 2018)

92 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"A blend of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Petit Verdot, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon (White Label) has a deep garnet-purple color and wonderfully pure scents of crushed black currants, black cherries and blackberries with suggestions of menthol, tobacco leaf, wild sage and pencil lead. The medium to full-bodied palate delivers a great core of vibrant black fruits plus plenty of herbal sparks, structured by an approachable grainy backbone and well-knit freshness, finishing long. 3,029 cases were made." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown (28th Dec 2018)
