A barrel sample of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon The Lark (Black Label) has a fantastically expressive nose of crème de cassis, preserved plums and blackberry compote with suggestions of sautéed herbs, tobacco leaf, scorched earth and smoked meats. The full-bodied palate is built like a brick house, with a very firm frame of ripe, grainy tannins and compelling freshness supporting the taut, muscular fruit, finishing long and earthy. 290 cases are expected to be made.

So much tile and brick character, highlighting the cherries and currants. Dark chocolate too. Hints of fresh herbs. Full body, soft, chewy tannins and such beautiful currant, coffee and chocolate flavors. Very long.
