Larkmead Cabernet Sauvignon "Solari" Napa Valley 2013
From one of the most historic wineries of Napa Valley, founded in 1895. Currently owned by Cam and Kate Solari Baker, who replanted the entire estate over their first 10 years of ownership and built a modern winery that has separate vinification tanks for each vineyard block.
Dan Petroski—SF Chronicle Winemaker of the Year in 2017—said about 2013: "the granddaddy of all vintages, with no soil stress, no heat spikes, no Indian summer." The Solari from 2013 shows the quality of the vintage. Plenty of power and structure, but with deliciously dense, ripe fruit.
