LARKMEAD 2011 CABERNET SAUVIGNON ESTATE NAPA VALLEY 750mL

Larkmead is not only one of the most historic vineyards in the Napa Valley, but the property is a reference point for high-quality, age worthy wines! Established in the late 1800s by the Solari family, the Larkmead estate has been the source for some of the greatest wine to come out of the Napa Valley, and their current list of clients includes Orin Swift, Cakebread, Duckhorn, and Ramey among others! Winemaker Andy Smith (who also makes the fantastic DuMol Wines), blended in small amounts of Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec, and Petit Verdot from the estate to increase aromatics and texture.

ROBERT PARKER 90 POINTS - "This splendid estate situated in the heart of Napa Valley, just north of St. Helena, has enjoyed a reputation for high quality for well over a century. Tasting with winemaker Andy Smith and Larkmeadís proprietor Cam Baker demonstrated once again just what brilliant wines these can be. All of the top cuvees (Solari, LMV Salon and the Lark) were declassified and not produced in 2011. 2012 appears to be a fabulous vintage for proprietor Cam Baker.

"The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate (100% Cabernet Sauvignon) offers up notes of mulberries, licorice, plums and tobacco leaf in its medium-bodied, surprisingly concentrated, well-made personality. There are over 3,000 cases produced, and it is one of the top wines made on the valley floor in 2011. The healthy deep ruby/purple color is accompanied by lots of fruit, soft tannins and low acidity. Consume it over the next 8-10 years."
