Larkmead Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Solari Reserve 2002,  (WA100) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Larkmead Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Solari Reserve

Vintage: 2002
Region: US
Appellation: Napa

WA100
Rated 100 points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `Absolutely compelling, the magnificent 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon Solari Reserve boasts a fabulous bouquet of lead pencil shavings, creme de cassis, spring flowers, graphite and a hint of toast. It has an unctuous texture, a full-bodied, multidimensional mouthfeel, stunning purity and a youthfulness that belies its ten years of age. This Napa Valley Cabernet is reminiscent of a great first-growth Pauillac such as Mouton-Rothschild. Still an infant in terms of its ultimate evolution, its anticipated maturity is between 2016 and 2040. Kudos to winemaker Andy Smith and proprietor Cam Baker.` -- Robert Parker in the Wine AdvocateAdditional Notes from the Wine Advocate: `One of Napa Valley`s most hallowed vineyards, with a history dating back to the 1800s, is Larkmead. I have been raving about these wines over the last decade, but I am not sure they are on Cabernet lovers` radar to the extent they merit. Their performance with age only reinforces what a great site this valley floor north of St. Helena and south of Calistoga is.`
