First constructed as the Larkmead Winery in 1884, the building was refinished with native sandstone from the nearby hills in 1906 and still stands tall today. Owner Richard Frank produces Chardonnay, Zinfandel, Sangiovese and several distinctly different Cabernet Sauvignons from various sites. The Zinfandel comes from the Brown Vineyards in the Chiles Valley while their Napa Carneros Vineyards produce some of the finest Chardonnay available.

Notes from the Winemaker:

This wine is perfumed in brioche and baked apple, with seasonings of nutmeg and vanilla. It opens in a rich, full-bodied concentration of citrus and white peach and evolves on the palate to show structure and depth. Bright acidity lifts hints of toasted oak, maintaining a fresh and plush finish.

Sourced primarily from their estate Lewis Vineyard as well as neighboring Beckstoffer Vineyards located in Napa-Carneros and Sangiacomo Vineyards located in Sonoma-Carneros, among others.

Aging: Barrel fermented in 34% new, 33% once and 33% twice-filled French oak barrels for 9 months.

Ratings & Reviews

93 Points - Owen Bargreen (2021):
“A truly outstanding effort by winemaker Todd Graff. Japanese pear, cardamom dusted brioche and suggestions of vanilla creme brûlée all fill the palate, with serious stuffing and underlying minerality. This is really fantastic stuff for the price to enjoy now and over the next seven years.”

93 Points - Somm Journal (2021):
“Seamless, with a brilliant golden hue and an inviting nose of yellow apple and lemon custard. Creamy vanilla and pear meld with toasty, well-integrated oak on the palate.”

92 Points - Wine Spectator (2021):
Powerful, with richness to the concentrated salted butterscotch, peach pastry and dried apricot flavors. Delivers details of spices and honeycomb, with elegant, fresh acidity weaving in and out to highlight the flavors. Drink now." -MW (6/23)
