Larkmead Vineyards

A5 West

Cabernet Sauvignon
Napa Valley

5 cases produced

Highlights

  • 100% Cabernet Sauvignon grown on Clone 337, aged in 100% French oak
  • Exclusive, single parcel (A5W) wine available only at Premiere Napa Valley
  • The 17-year-old vines are planted in loam soil surrounded by 30 acres of gravel
  • Larkmead has developed this parcel to highlight the diversity of its 110-acre estate

Created from older vines (17-plus years), this wine comes from an anomaly in our A block - a patch of Bale loam surrounded by Cortina; this deeper, richer series sprinkled with cobble produces the most luxurious wine from the estate. The wine has a depth and concentration that is unrivaled from the property.


Wine Facts

  • Single vineyard wine
  • Organically produced (also commonly called "organically grown")
  • Wine is 100% estate grown and bottled
