This is a big and juicy red with dark berries, tobacco and hazelnuts. Iron too. Full body and layered, chewy tannins. Balsamic lilt to the red fruit on the palate. Ripe and beautiful. Brick and terracota character to the ripe fruit. Tar too. Needs time to soften.
The 2016 LMV Salon is a blend of 55% Cabernet Franc and 45% Cabernet Sauvignon and it was firing on all cylinders. With perfumed notes of plum, currants, violets and spring flowers, it shows the change in style of the estate with a medium-bodied, elegant, crisp, yet balanced style on the palate. Brought up in 60% new French oak, it too is going to need bottle age.
The 2016 LMV Salon is just as compelling from bottle as it was from barrel. Rose petal, mint, sweet red cherry and espresso open up in a very pretty, aromatically expressive wine. Cabernet Franc takes the leading role in the LMV Salon in 2016, and that comes through very nicely here. Bright, vibrant and full of character, the 2016 hits all the right notes. What a gorgeous wine it is. (AG)
The deep garnet-purple colored 2016 LMV Salon sings of kirsch, red currant jelly, crushed blackberries and black raspberries with hints of marmite toast, pencil shavings, cracked black pepper and tilled soil. Medium to full-bodied, the palate with led with a rock-solid structure of chewy tannins and a living line lifting the red and black fruit layers with a long, herb laced finish. (LPB) 93+
