From the depth of its flavors to its smooth texture, there was so much to love about this wine.
The Story Behind the Wine
The Larkmead Vineyards have been around since 1895, and they are located in Napa Valley, California. The winery has been passed down from generation to generation, and it is currently run by a family that has a passion for producing exceptional wines. The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon is one of their most notable releases, and it tells a powerful story about the region’s rich history and terroir.
The Tasting Experience
When I first uncorked the wine bottle, I was immediately hit by a burst of aromas that included ripe blackberries, blackcurrants, and a hint of vanilla. The wine’s color was an intense shade of red, which indicated that it had been aged to perfection. Upon taking the first sip, I was pleased to find that the wine had a full-bodied taste with firm tannins that gave it lingering complexity. It had a pleasant acidity that balanced out the rich fruit flavors, which made it an ideal pairing for grilled meats and hearty stews.
The Larkmead 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Petit Verdot, 6% Malbec, and 4% Merlot grapes. These grapes were grown in the vineyards’ clay soils that provide the ideal conditions for growing high-quality cabernet sauvignon. The wine was aged in French oak barrels for 19 months, which contributed to its smooth texture and oak flavors that complemented the fruitiness of the wine.
The Larkmead 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon is a wine that impresses with its complexity, richness, and elegance. It is a wine that captures the essence of the Napa Valley and reflects the passion and hard work that went into making it. It is a wine that is meant to be savored and enjoyed with friends and loved ones who appreciate the finer things in life. As a website operator and wine lover, I highly recommend the Larkmead 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon to anyone who is looking for a wine that delivers an unforgettable tasting experience like no other.
