Larkmead has been an integral part of Napa Valley's history since the late 19th Century. Larkmead was one of the four great Napa Valley wineries before prohibition.

After a period from the 50's to the 80's where no wine was made, Larkmead began making wine again in the 90's. Larkmead is now embarking on its third century of crafting 100% Estate grown, 100% Napa Valley wines. The vineyard is also are the source of fruit for numerous other Napa Valley stars.

Their vision today is in the tradition of the founders of Larkmead- to create consistently excellent wines from their Estate - wines that are a true expression of place.

Winemaker's Notes:

Deep ruby red-purple color. Unmistakable Larkmead aromatic profile of dusky cola, wild herbs, minerals and ripe dark fruit, with a complex, perfumed violet side note. The palate is immediately dark, rich and multi-layered with Larkmead menthol-mineral flavors, graphite, cedar and dusty cocoa powder notes. Concentrated dark fruit dominates as the palate expands but the wine remains lively, juicy and focused throughout. The tannins are long, youthful and satisfying and bring richness and length to the palate, which finishes with a whiff of pepper and aromatic thyme.


Robert Parker 94+ Points

Composed of 96% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Merlot, and 1% Cabernet Franc, the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate (nearly 4,000 cases produced) is a great buy for a world-class Napa Cabernet Sauvignon. It exhibits a dense purple color, notes of charcoal, creme de cassis, graphite, and forest floor, and a ripe, opulently fruity, rich, full-bodied style. Its endearing silkiness, multi-dimensions, and mature, sweet tannins suggest it has two decades of life ahead of it.
