"Their very small cuvée of 263 cases, the 100% Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 The Lark exhibits plenty of sweet chocolate, roasted espresso, blackberry, cassis and white flowers and a long, dense, multi-layered mouthfeel that builds incrementally to a fabulous finish of close to a minute. The alcohol is 14.7% and the wine was aged 20 months in 80% new French oak prior to bottling. This is a stunner and a modern-day classic from Larkmead. Drink it over the next 25-30 years."

"The 2014 The Lark is the most reticent and tightly wound of the 100% Cabernets at Larkmead. A host of graphite, game, smoke and leather wrap around a core of intense dark fruit. The 2014 was much more expressive from barrel than it is today from bottle. Readers will have to be especially patient."
"From the moment you pull the cork, the density of the wine’s aromas fill the air. The scent comes at you in waves – macerated blackberries from a warm vintage; graphite from the fine gravel and sandy soils the vines are planted in; espresso bean and clove from the new French oak barrels; and, with ample exposure to oxygen the wine begins to reveal its classic Larkmead red fruit aromas.
The wine enters the mouth with the showmanship of being a heavier wine as it travels across your palate intensely until it fades away into the distance leaving you with the memory of its polished core of black fruit. The overall texture of this wine is where it stands apart -- there is an elegance and luxury on the palate that does not exist anywhere else in the Larkmead portfolio." - Winery
