    ($80; a selection of three blocks; 100% cabernet sauvignon) Good deep ruby-red. Brooding aromas of cassis, cedar, graphite and menthol. Suave and fine-grained on entry, and not quite as thick as the LMV Salon. The mid-palate shows a distinctly medicinal menthol quality and less easy sweetness than the LMV but a more serious structure and excellent lift. At once juicy and uncompromising, but then this is cabernet sauvignon. Finishes with solid tannins that call for several years of cellaring. My score today may turn out to be conservative. This has a higher pH than the LMV Salon (3.85, vs. 3.75) but is less pliant today.

    Absolutely brilliant, the 100% Cabernet Sauvignon cuvee, the 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Solari Reserve (825 cases) has gorgeous notes of cedar wood, creme de cassis, creosote, and forest floor in its fragrant, full-bodied, velvety textured, opulent style. It must be considered in the running as a candidate for wine of the vintage in Napa. Just sensational stuff, this wine should drink well for at least 20-30+ years.

    Dark purple turning to deep cherry on the rim. Opened two hours before starting to show fruit but once it opened up the fruit was huge. Long finish. One of my favorite Larkmead wines.
