Larkmead Merlot "Firebelle" Napa Valley 2016
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.
The Firebelle is named for Lillie Hitchcock Coit (of Coit Tower fame in San Francisco), who originally owned the Larkmead estate. It is a blend of ⅔ Merlot, with Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot.
