This has a lot to do with the passion of their winemaker, Dan Petrosky, whose e uropean-influenced style truly sets them apart. The l arkmead Cabernet Sauvignon is a benchmark wine for the region in every vintage. The Firebelle, primarily m erlot, shows what the variety is truly capable of in the v alley. Then there is the lmv Salon, one of l arkmead's most prestigious and age-worthy wines, and Dr. o lmo, which takes advantage of l arkmead's older vines. Simply stated, if the ripe and over the top giants of the past have left you with a bad impression of Napa v alley, then you owe it to yourself to discover l arkmead. ✦ Larkmead Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2015 W a 92–95 » $142 "...this is a real winner….capable of lasting 20 or more years."
