Ramey Larkmead Cabernet Sauvignon 2004
David Ramey is one of the finest and most respected winemakers in California. 2004 saw the inaugural release of the Larkmead Cabernet, a blend of 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Petit Verdot and 9% Malbec from a single gravelly vineyard. It is full-bodied and opulent, yet unwaveringly elegant, with delicious black fruits, subtle mineral undertones and exceptionally fine tannic structure. This should now be at peak for drinking.
