Larkmead Vineyards Dr. Olmo Cabernet 2013
Heady aromas of violets, blue fruit and graphite coupled with dusty, crushed rock and red cherry sweetness give this wine an ethereal bouquet. On entry into the mouth, the palate follows the nose but almost immediately the flavors draw back down to earth and are blended into a lean, but muscular, compact core. With time in the glass, the flavors darken as blueberries become blackberries and red cherry becomes black cherry. In the mouth, the tannins escape the core and dust the outer rim of the palate with sour, Morello cherry notes.
