Product Overview

Winery's Notes
"Our 2017 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is one of our favorite bottlings to date. Accentuated with 10% Merlot, this wine is classic Larkmead – aromas of purple flowers, red cherries, cedar, warm gravel and graphite fill the glass. With time, the nose on this wine continues to evolve, revealing plum, leather and tobacco accents.

The palate is youthful and vibrant, balancing on the lighter side of blue and black fruits and berries. The wine is in constant motion, playfully dancing across the palate until it dissolves into dusty, fine tannins. A second sip introduces you to cherry candy and wet rock minerality. A third sip brings forest floor bramble and dried herb notes. Though the product of a stressful and dramatic vintage, this wine resonates with immense purity, poise and grace."

96 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"With 10% Merlot, this is a structured red that's built by broad tannins but approachable in its youth. Earthy peat, dried herb, cedar and cigar box play against a depth of dark cherry, cassis and plum, while fresh acidity permeates beneath, making for a cohesive package." -VB, 12/1/2020
