Winemaker Notes

A fully saturated purple color hints at the concentration that is tofollow. Aromas of intense black cherry, creamy black raspberry, smoke and cedar lead to a palate that is dense and striking in its complexity. The signature Larkmead fruit core of crème de cassis liqueur is complemented by bittersweet chocolate, roasted meat, graphite and sweet vanilla. The wine’s broad, weighty texture is buffered by penetrating tannins and an extended, succulent finish. This powerhouse of a wine will improve for 7 years as thewine’s dense fruit core sinks further into the wine, increasing complexity and persistence in the finish. Decant for an hour in its youth to allow the full range of flavors to shine and drink over the next 15 years.

Critical Acclaim

RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The stunning 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon Solari Reserve is a fair value given the inflated pricing for so many California Cabernets. Aged in 100% new French oak, this limited cuvee exhibits a saturated black/purple color in addition to big, sweet aromas of creosote interwoven with road tar, creme de cassis, cedar, and vanilla. Full-bodied, powerful, concentrated, and exceptionally pure, with loads of glycerin and sweet tannin in the finish, it is young and unevolved, but exceptionally promising. Atypical for a 2001, it is soft enough to be drunk young, but 2-3 years of cellaring is suggested. Drink it over the following 15+ years.
WS 92
Wine Spectator
Firm and muscular with a dense, rich, concentrated core of blackberry, currant and plum flavors supported by tight tannins and framed by cedary oak; this wine combines power with touches of finesse.

Napa Valley

Cabernet Sauvignon

View all products

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.
