2006 Ramey "Larkmead Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1053202 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Glass-staining ruby. Deep, youthfully brooding cassis and dark cherry on the nose, with a strong licorice note building in the glass. Sappy black and blue fruit flavors are framed by dusty tannins and energized by a tangy mineral note. The licorice quality repeats on the finish, which is broad, sappy and impressively persistent. For a big boy, this is pretty graceful. (ST)  (6/1999)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Although backward, the 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Larkmead Vineyard (3,820 cases) is extremely promising. Its inky/ruby/purple color is followed by a gorgeous perfume of smoke herbs, graphite, creme de cassis, coffee beans, and toasty oak. With sensational fruit on the attack and mid-palate, and a finish filled with power, glycerin, depth, and impressive structure, this 2006 will benefit from 2-3 years of bottle age, and should evolve for two decades or more.

Jancis Robinson

 Linear cassis and cedar aromas and flavours. Tight and reticent, with liquorice and sage accenting dense black fruit. Should open with cellaring. (LM)  (8/2009)

Wine Spectator

 Intense and slightly earthy and rustic in a pleasant way. Shows pebble, fresh earth and a touch of forest floor, with spicy currant and berry fruit that's wrapped in the wine's earthiness. Ends with rich tannins. (JL)  (11/2009)
