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.

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.

Undoubtedly proving its merit over and over, Napa Valley is a now a leading force in the world of prestigious red wine regions. Though Cabernet Sauvignon dominates Napa Valley, other red varieties certainly thrive here. Important but often overlooked include Merlot and other Bordeaux varieties well-regarded on their own as well as for their blending capacities. Very old vine Zinfandel represents an important historical stronghold for the region and Pinot noir is produced in the cooler southern parts, close to the San Pablo Bay.

Perfectly situated running north to south, the valley acts as a corridor, pulling cool, moist air up from the San Pablo Bay in the evenings during the hot days of the growing season, which leads to even and slow grape ripening. Furthermore the valley claims over 100 soil variations including layers of volcanic, gravel, sand and silt—a combination excellent for world-class red wine production.
