2012 Larkmead Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1195793 94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Aromas of currant, blueberry and brick character. Some dried herb too. Full body, firm and racy tannins plus dark berry, dark chocolate and mahogany. Wonderful finish. Inner quote mark (7/2015)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The soft, delicious, complex 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate offers notes of cedarwood, blackcurrants, baking spices, Asian soy, crème de cassis, licorice and a touch of graphite. It continues to remind me of a hypothetical blend of a second or third-growth Bordeaux Pauillac with a Napa Valley Cabernet. (RP) Inner quote mark (10/2014)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon bursts from the glass with tons of depth and overall intensity. Graphite, menthol, new leather, smoke, herbs and black fruit are all laced together nicely. Today the tannins are a bit dusty and rough around the edges, but at the same time, the 2012 is nowhere near ready to drink, so there is plenty of time for those contours to soften a touch. The Cabernet Sauvignon is a pretty tannic wine for the year, so patience is key. (AG) Inner quote mark (12/2014)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Well-proportioned if restrained, with spicy, cedary oak and mature-tasting dried currant and red berry, ending with dusty earth and wood. (JL, Web-2015) Inner quote mark

K&L Notes

This is without a doubt one of our favorites from the great 2012 vintage. The estate has been part of the Solari family for nearly 70 years, continuing this property's proud tradition of producing world-class wines that began in 1895.

When you talk about a wine that is sleek, polished, elegant, with classic Napa Valley hedonism at its core, then you must be talking about the new 2012 Larkmead Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon! My only complaint here is; I want more! I can't get enough of this wine, I want to drink it now, and I want to cellar it! It's 100% perfect in its depth of fruit and structure. Love.

One of the best wines from our trip to Napa this past February! The 2012 Larkmead is one of the more opulent Larkmead Cabernets I have ever tasted. The mouth feel is almost silky. Tannins are present but ripe and integrated. This is a big Cabernet but the wine is so seamless and balanced, the word big doesn’t seem appropriate. This Cabernet is going to show excellent young and continue to do so over the next 15 years.
