Housed in Napa Valley’s historic Larkmead Winery, these hand crafted wines live up to the heritage of the land.
Grapes for this 2018 Napa Cab are sourced primarily from estate vineyards including S&J Vineyard located east of the Vaca Mountain range in Napa’s Capell Valley and Benjamin Vineyard located east of Conn Creek Road in the heart of the Rutherford AVA. Additional vineyard sources include neighboring Quarry Vineyard and Round Pond Estate in Rutherford, Delouise and Shooting Star Vineyards located in Napa Valley.
The blend is 96% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot aged 20 months in 33% new and 67% once and twice-filled French oak barrels.
Jeb Dunnuck scored this 90 points saying “The base appellation 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon (which includes 2% Petit Verdot and 2% Merlot) is a terrific value, offering loads of blue and black fruits as well as notes of tobacco, candied violets, Asian spices, and sandalwood. Medium to full-bodied, with rock-solid overall balance, ripe yet integrated tannins, and a great finish, this is a classic, well-made Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon to enjoy over the coming 10-12 years.”
