Winemaker Notes

In the mouth, the beauty of the wine is its expansiveness. The wine enters with medium body weight and compact, liqueur-like flavors before building to a broad, long, sweet structure that lingers on the palate well after the wine is gone. The currants, crushed stone and subtle herbs carry the finish.

There is a true Cabernet Sauvignon purity to this wine and an authentic sense of place; in the Larkmead Estate, it translates into balancing intense and pleasurable fruitfulness with a restrained and subtle elegance.

Blend: 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Petit Verdot

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 95
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon and 14% Petit Verdot, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is a dead-ringer for a first or second growth Pauillac. Aromas of spring flowers, creme de cassis, licorice, cedarwood and lead pencil shavings are followed by a wine with that wonderful sweet fruit that the French call sucrosite, which is an impression of sweetness even though the wine is totally dry. A superb texture, stunning purity and a full-bodied, blockbuster finish make for a wine that should be reasonably drinkable when released next year. It should age nicely for 20-25 years. Range: 92-95

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.
