Winemaker Notes

Named after Lillie Hitchcock Coit's bungalow on her Larkmead ranch, the LMV Salon inlcudes a selection of Cabernet Franc, lending supple gracefulness and elegance to this wine, setting it apart from other bottlings. Deep ruby red/purple color. Intensely perfumed nose of vibrant red fruits, fresh flowers and tobacco deepen to dark cherry, licorice and gravel/slate notes. The palate is unmistakably Larkmead with deep penetrating black fruits, cocoa powder and dried herbs. There is great texture and flesh to the wine yet it remains supple and lively without any plummy over ripeness or excess weight. It finishes long, broad and round with an inner mouth aromatic character that is both complex and vibrant and hugely satisfying.

Blend: 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Cabernet Franc, 11% Merlot, 11% Malbec & 2% Petit Verdot

Critical Acclaim

RP 95
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Equally prodigious are the 800 cases of 2006 LMV Salon Proprietary Red, a blend of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Cabernet Franc, and the rest the other three Bordeaux varietals (Merlot, Malbec, and Petit Verdot). Spicy, chocolatey espresso roast notes intermixed with spring flowers and a hint of bay leaf are followed by a full-bodied wine with oodles of black currant and cherry fruit. The sweetness of the tannins, the breadth and savory mouthfeel, as well as the layered texture, make for an exceptional glass of sumptuous wine. It should drink nicely for 15+ years.
