The fabulous 2012 Proprietary Red LMV Salon is a 1,090-case blend of 67% Cabernet Sauvignon and 33% Cabernet Franc. It reveals a refined nose of mulberries, blueberries, raspberries, spring flowers and forest floor. A dense, ripe, opulent, medium to full-bodied 2012, I rated it slightly lower than last year from barrel because it seems somewhat closed. (RP)
Larkmead's 2012 LMV Salon is all about texture, polish and silkiness. Dark red cherries, plums and cloves are all beautifully expressive. Silky tannins support the creamy finish. The LMV Salon has changed quite a bit conceptually since I first started tasting the component wines in the Spring of 2013. Since then, winemaker Dan Petroski has opted to add a fair amount of Cabernet Franc to the blend, 33% to be exact, the highest ever here. That has resulted in a wine built on finesse and resonance. There is so much to like here. (AG)
This offers a core of dense, dusty, loamy earth—laced Cabernet, with shades of black licorice, mocha and espresso. All in all, this is a powerful, well-focused effort that merits short-term cellaring.
