The 2016 ‘Dr. Olmo’ is made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon that was sourced from cortina gravel soils in the A-Blocks of the Larkmead Vineyard. Like all of the 2016’s from Larkmead, this displays striking purity and freshness that makes it instantly appealing. Aromas of ripe red and dark currants come together with fresh cut flowers, savory herbs, mint and hints of tobacco leaf to form the gorgeous perfumed nose. On the palate this is incredibly structured with beautifully polished, yet firm tannins that tightly wrap the core of pure red and dark fruits. Showing outstanding overall balance and precision the ‘Dr. Olmo’ will need a few years before it shows its full potential, however it clearly looks to have a marvelous future ahead and should go on to offer decades of drinking pleasure.
