2016 LARKMEAD NAPA VALLEY CABERNET SAUVIGNON

Founded in 1895, Larkmead is one of the oldest family-owned wineries in Napa Valley, and it’s the geology of what’s beneath their vines that truly makes their Estate vineyards undeniably special.  Centuries of alluvial flow have resulted in the accumulation of ancient riverbed gravel, clay, and loam, forming the perfect canvas to cultivate grapes in.  Winemaker Dan Petroski ferments grapes from these special vineyards in small lots that are broken up by clonal selection and soil type.  He’s then able to identify and blend the absolute best wine possible from each vintage.  The results speak for themselves, and their 2016 Napa Valley Cabernet described as a “stellar, powerhouse wine” by Wine Enthusiast earned an incredible 98 Point score and Editors’ Choice.

Their 2016 Napa Valley Cabernet perfectly highlights the diversity of their estate, and arose from the deeper, richer soils found in A and C blocks. The wine was then kept at rest for 19 months in Tonnelleries, Demptos and Ermitage barrels. Checking in this year at 94% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Petit Verdot, the 2016 perfectly balances powerful fruit with bright acidity and profound complexity.  I strongly recommend adding some to your cellar.

2016 DuMOL NAPA VALLEY CABERNET SAUVIGNON

DuMOL is a dominating force in top-quality Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Syrah production, and the winery has been making hits since the early 2000’s.  Did you know that their winemaker Andy Smith has extensive experience making some of the most revered Cabernet Sauvignons in the world?  Andy was the winemaker at Larkmead from 1999-2013 as well as the winemaker for Gemstone from 1997 to 2004 and the assistant winemaker at Paul Hobbs consulting, where he worked with many of the top vineyards in Napa Valley.  When I learned about their new Cabernet Sauvignon, I couldn’t wait to try it.  For their Cabernet, they exercise the same exacting attention to detail and source fruit from vineyards with a powerful sense of place, just like they do for their Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Syrah.

Making an entrance from some of Napa Valley’s most expressive vineyards including Meteor, True Dog Knoll in Oakville, and Ballard on Spring Mountain, the 2016 is incredibly stunning.  The largest component for the 2016 is Meteor Vineyard, and it shows in the hedonistic, earthy undertones and dusty tannins.  Meteor produces their own high-scoring Cabs from this vineyard which can top $300/btl.  At $105, the 2016 DuMOL Cabernet deserves a spot in your cellar and on your dinner table.
