2013 Larkmead "Solari" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (Previously $240)

SKU #1274212 97 points Vinous

Outer quote mark A much more backward, powerful wine than the Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2013 Solari possesses superb balance and intensity, with huge tannins, expressive aromatics and the pedigree to age well for years. That time will be essential, as the 2013 is going to require serious patience. Huge, searing tannins wrap around a core of dark red and black fruit, sweet spices, licorice and new leather. (AG) Inner quote mark (10/2015)

96 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark So much blueberry, black currant and licorice aromas follow through to a full body, plus focused and chewy tannins that are polished and beautiful. A super wine with a future. Inner quote mark (1/2016)

96 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Solari, which is 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot (945 cases), is a huge, massive wine of great intensity, coiled tightly at present, but with high tannins, formidable extract and unlimited upside potential. This is a real connoisseur’s choice, since it needs a good 5-8 years of bottle age. This is a monster effort from the valley floor and should be respected appropriately. (RP) Inner quote mark (10/2015)
