Wine Grapes

Primary Grape: Cabernet Sauvignon | All Grapes: 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Cabernet Franc

From the Producer

At first the aromas of the 2014 LMV Salon are brooding and reticent. It is di cult to penetrate the wine’s outer skin, but careful study reveals scents of blue and black fruit, dark chocolate and coffee bean. With air, however, the nose opens dramatically, displaying an evolving bouquet of bright red fruit and spice, along with a subtle herbal tone that speaks to the Cabernet Franc at the core of the blend. Similarly, the first sip of this wine reveals a tightly muscular palate. As it relaxes, however, the flavors begin to unfold from the texture — revealing notes of charred wood, wet loam, spice, red clay, and dried earth. The fruit flavors are precise on the tongue, and travel from the warmth of black cherry to the brightness of red cherry.

Critical Acclaim

JS94 JamesSuckling.com Friday, May 5, 2017

"Lots of blueberry, licorice and gun-powder aromas follow through to medium to full body, fine tannins and a savory finish. Lovely balance and fruitiness. Lovely now. Tangy minerality. Drink and enjoy." (94 pts.)

VN94 Vinous Dec 2016

"The 2014 LMV Salon offers lovely depth and intensity. Today, the Cabernet Franc is really expressive, not just in its signature aromatics, but in its mid-weight, refined feel. The 2014 was much more expressive last year. Then again, it was just bottled. Red stone fruit, mint, rose petal, mocha and raspberry jam open up nicely, while beams of tannin give the wine its energetic feel." (94 pts.)

RP95 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 28th Oct 2016

"Even more prodigious is the 2014 LMV Salon. Composed of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Cabernet Franc from the sandy Bale Loam soils of the 110 acres Larkmead possesses, it is a bigger boy at 14.9% alcohol but shows lots of crushed rock and wet gravel minerality, a beautiful, cedary, blackcurrant nose with notes of forest floor, allspice and soy, with more blackberry on the palate as well as some savory herbs and spice. Hints of licorice also make an appearance in this broad, fleshy, juicy and succulent style of wine meant for drinking now and over the next 20 years." (95 pts.)

VN93+ Vinous Oct 2015

"Larkmead’s 2014 LMV Salon is sweet, nuanced and totally sexy. Pliant and super-expressive, even at this early stage, the 2014 is shaping up to be a beauty. Today, the fruit is quite primary, with plenty of sweet red cherry and plum nuances to match its supple personality." (93–96 pts.)

California

When it comes to US wine production, California is King. California wines account for almost 90% of all wines produced in the United States each year, and is home to the most celebrated vineyards and producers in the country. California is probably best known for its world-famous Cabernets and Chardonnays, many of which hail from its two most-acclaimed AVAs, Napa Valley and Sonoma County. Other prominent grapes used in California wines include Merlot, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, and Zinfandel (which California made popular).
