2013 Larkmead Cabernet Sauvignon
by JJ Buckley Fine Wines
On Sale $114.94 (reg. $124.94)
From "one of the all-time great vintages for Napa Valley" (AG), the 2013 Larkmead Cabernet is an opulent 100% Cab that shows all the savory, mineral tinged glory of this legendary site. Despite over a century of history in Napa, Larkmead's 2013 could very well be their best ever, with an impeccable balance of power and elegance, and we're thrilled to bring it to you today on sale!
"An extraordinary estate" in the eyes of Parker and "one of the most distinctive sites anywhere in California" per Galloni, Larkmead has a reputation reaching back into the 1800s. The old river gravel that dominates here is responsible for what Galloni has called “some of the very best wines being made in Napa Valley today," while Parker says that the efforts from the winemaking team "prove irrefutably what a first growth terroir Larkmead possesses."
"This is a solid cab" (JS) that should be in the cellar of all die-hard Napa fans as well as connoisseurs with a more European slant to their palate (Parker states that "for my tastes, these wines are always dead ringers for great Pauillacs."), so pick up some today! Cheers!
