K&L Notes

Proprietor Cam Baker and his winemaker Dan Petroski continue to prove irrefutably what a first growth terroir Larkmead possesses. Located directly on the valley floor north of St. Helena, this is a superb site, with alluvial, gravelly soils, but there’s diversity in the soil, with plenty of clay, rock and what they refer to as Cortina Gravel. (Robert Parker's Wine Advocate)

    One of the two ‘black label’ bottlings along with the ‘Solari’. Both are stunning soil driven examples of 100% Caberent Sauvignon showcasing CA terroir. The ‘Dr Olmo’ is grown on gravel and shows more brooding character, scorched earth, and minerality. The ‘Solari’ is grown on Cortina gravel and clay parcels resulting in a profile that is more plush, round, and seamless. The 2014 ‘Dr. Olmo’ is impressive with notes of charcoal, deep black and blue fruits, mineral, and tobacco leaf. A superior bottling showcasing CA terroir.

    The second of two "black label" releases tasted at the estate. Lifted blue and black fruit aromas create compelling aromas and lead to a palate that not only reflects that fruit, but shows off a leather, gravel and graphite component. It is certainly compact but has soft, integrated, sweet tannins alongside a layered texture. For those who love structured, ageworthy wines of this profile, it will be hard to do much better. Another stunner from the high-end wines of Larkmead in 2014. Drink 2022 to 2040.
