Winemaker Notes

Our favorite estate Cabernet to date, the new vintage comes from a growing season that featured a cool summer which increased aromatic complexity, followed by intense heat at harvest to fully mature and sweeten the Cabernet's abundant tannins. The 2004 blend features the fruit intensity and textural elements of the hugely popular 2002 with the structure of the 1999.

Bright ruby/purple. Intensely aromatic nose of sweet black cherry, dusty cocoa and a rich core of dark smoky fruits. Dark black fruits dominate the palate with cassis, blackberry and black raspberry. Typical Larkmead nuances of stony minerality, graphite and spice are supported by perfectly ripe, seductive tannins which glide across the palate creating a sense of seamless integration. A note of creamy mocha adds richness to round out the finish.

Approachable early due to the level of natural fruit sweetness, the wine should age well for a decade and beyond. Decant for an hour in its youth to experience the wine's full range of flavors. This large-scaled wine will further concentrate for 5 years in bottle and hold for a decade or more

Critical Acclaim

RP 96
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate boasts gorgeous creme de cassis fruit intermixed with notes of lead pencil, spring flowers and blackberries. The wood component is beautifully integrated. With superb texture, a full-bodied mouthfeel, and a finish that lasts for 45 seconds, this classic Napa Cabernet Sauvignon possesses an unmistakable Pauillac-like personality. It can be drunk now or cellared for 15-20 years.

Larkmead, California
Larkmead Winery Image
Larkmead Vineyards dates back to the late 1800s, and have been owned by the Solari family since 1948. The historic Larkmead Estate is comprised of 145 acres. Due to the dramatic variation in soil types, the vineyard is divided into three distinct areas in order to maximize fruit and subsequent wine quality while diversifying flavor profiles for blending purposes. The true character of Larkmead and its unique wines are a direct result of the topography, climate, and the exceptional geology of the soils.

Larkmead is 100% Estate fruit; it is therefore imperative to them that they treat the land as a polyculture system with all factors interrelated and focus on long term soil health. They are always seeking environmentally sound, long term solutions that promote the natural expression of their vineyards, resulting in wine that is unique in its purity, texture, and complexity.

One of the most prestigious wines of the world capable of great power and grace, Napa Valley Cabernet is a leading force in the world of fine, famous, collectible red wines. Today the Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without the other. But it wasn’t until the 1970s that this marriage came to light; sudden international recognition rained upon Napa with the victory of the Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars 1973 Cabernet Sauvignon in the 1976 Judgement of Paris.

Cabernet Sauvignon undoubtedly dominates Napa Valley today, covering half of the land under vine, commanding the highest prices per ton and earning the most critical acclaim. Cabernet Sauvignon’s structure, acidity, capacity to thrive in multiple environs and ability to express nuances of vintage make it perfect for Napa Valley where incredible soil and geographical diversity are found and the climate is perfect for grape growing. Within the Napa Valley lie many smaller sub-AVAs that express specific characteristics based on situation, slope and soil—as a perfect example, Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
