Established in 1895 by Lillie Hitchcock Coit and before Prohibition, was considered one of Napa Valley's four great wineries along with Inglenook, Beringer and Beaulieu. The flagship of the Larkmead wine portfolio is The Lark, a varietal Cabernet Sauvignon released on an allocated basis. First produced as a barrel selection of the best Cabernet Sauvignon lots, it has evolved to a vineyard selection of Cabernet Sauvignon from older vines at least 17 years in age. Prior to release, it is barrel-aged in French oak for 21 months. Other notable wines in the collection include the 125th Anniversary Cuveé, a blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon with small portions of Petit Verdot released to celebrate 125 years of Larkmead vintages. The Lillie is the sole white wine, an age-worthy varietal Sauvignon Blanc that spends ten months barrel-aging in both foudre and hogs head barrels. Overall, white wine accounts for less than 10-percent of the Larkmead portfolio. Unusual to the Napa Valley, Larkmead also produces a small amount of the Italian variety Tocai Friulano from vines planted before Prohibition. The estate vineyard covers 61 hectares (150 acres) in the Napa Valley. This is divided into three blocks based on the property's diverse terroir. Block A is situated on deep, sandy loam soils, and planted to Cabernet Sauvignon. Block B is predominantly Merlot with some Sauvignon Blanc, and Block C is planted to a mix of other varieties. All of Larkmead's wines are made entirely from estate vineyard fruit, and the company also sells fruit to several other prestigious wine producers in Napa.\u003cbr\u003e","published_at":"2023-01-04T13:56:12-05:00","created_at":"2023-01-02T04:03:19-05:00","vendor":"CaskCartel.com","type":"Wine","tags":["Country_United States","nini0201","Other_Wine","Producer_Larkmead","Region_Napa","Source_Bestofwines1222","Type_Cabernet Sauvignon","Type_Red Wine"],"price":59999,"price_min":59999,"price_max":59999,"available":true,"price_varies":false,"compare_at_price":null,"compare_at_price_min":0,"compare_at_price_max":0,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":42659680354442,"title":"Default Title","option1":"Default Title","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":false,"featured_image":null,"available":true,"name":"2016 | Larkmead | Cabernet Sauvignon Solari","public_title":null,"options":["Default Title"],"price":59999,"weight":12247,"compare_at_price":null,"inventory_management":"shopify","barcode":"","requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_allocations":[]}],"images":["\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0050\/2395\/7103\/products\/11_8ffbfbbe-f7b5-4cee-ba53-b74d6e2ca579.png?v=1672650236"],"featured_image":"\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0050\/2395\/7103\/products\/11_8ffbfbbe-f7b5-4cee-ba53-b74d6e2ca579.png?v=1672650236","options":["Title"],"media":[{"alt":"2016 | Larkmead | Cabernet Sauvignon Solari at CaskCartel.com","id":23887363375242,"position":1,"preview_image":{"aspect_ratio":0.778,"height":586,"width":456,"src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0050\/2395\/7103\/products\/11_8ffbfbbe-f7b5-4cee-ba53-b74d6e2ca579.png?v=1672650236"},"aspect_ratio":0.778,"height":586,"media_type":"image","src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0050\/2395\/7103\/products\/11_8ffbfbbe-f7b5-4cee-ba53-b74d6e2ca579.png?v=1672650236","width":456}],"requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_groups":[],"content":"\u003ch2\u003eRed Wine: 2016 | Larkmead | Cabernet Sauvignon Solari\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003c\/h2\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThe richness and power are notonly on the surface, beneath its heavy coating, the 2016 Solari exudes notes of fresh violets, bay leaf, savory meats and leather.With time in the glass, the wine’s aromas increase in volume, constantly shape-shifting and drawing you in.On the palate wine  has swagger.
