Lariana Cab Sauvignon in 2016 achieved balance, as the vintage allowed all the blocks to be picked at their optimum ripeness. Aromas are layered with dark plums, dried Mediterranean mulberries with hints of licorice and cedar. Plump and delicious, it fills the mouth with flavours of juicy black cherries, espresso-scented chocolate with an underlying streak of cassis. All this explosive richness transforms into a silken graceful finish. Pairing alongside simply grilled thick lamb chops comes to mind.
