2009 Larkmead, the Lark

Posted on

2009 Larkmead, the Lark which had been sitting in the cellar for seven years came out to great us! This wine is made from a single rocky soil block at Larkmead Estate. On the eyes somewhere between a cardinal red and a dark crimson red, this is no ordinary wine with a medium-heavy viscosity. On the nose, perfumed aromatics, wet gravel, blueberries and a wash of smokiness (the good kind!). In the mouth, it is all encompassing with dark fruits, licorice and dark chocolate. The finish is complex, structured and enduring with powerful tannins. Reputable wine scorers have given it up to 98 points. Wine Searcher showed this still available at Wine Bank in Menlo Park for $315. Fortunately, I have a few more in the cellar and its time has arrived. #larkmeadvineyards #napavalleycabernetsauvignon #redwine #cabernetsauvignon #larkmeadcabernetsauvignon https://californiawinesandwineries.com
