5 cases produced

In 2011, we celebrate the fifth vintage of Larkmead Estate Cabernet to have been crushed and crafted at our new winery on Larkmead Lane. Continuing a tradition started on the Larkmead Estate in the 1870s by Lillie Hitchcock Coit, we have renewed our dedication to producing wines which reflect the inherent depth, power and complexity of our estate vineyards. Through these five Premiere Napa Valley 2011 cases, one may taste the best of the 2009 vintage, sourced from a small sub-section of the vineyard and composed in a way to best showcase the unique terroir of the Larkmead Estate.

Q&A With the Winemaker

Q: Premiere Napa Valley wines are innovative and allow each winery to showcase the region's sense of exploration in fine winemaking. What kind of exploration did your Premiere Napa Valley wine allow you to do?

A: Barrel selection was a very interesting exploration with this vintage. We used a slightly more subtle barrel to express the true expression of the vineyard.
