LARKMEAD FIREBELLE 2016 PROPRIETARY RED
Larkmead Vineyards, based in Calistoga, is one of the oldest family-owned estates in the Napa Valley. The estate was established in 1895 by Lillie Hitchcock Coit and, before Prohibition, was considered one of Napa Valley’s four great wineries along with Inglenook, Beringer and Beaulieu. Today, Larkmead makes a range of varietal and blended wines from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Sauvignon Blanc.
The estate vineyard covers 61 hectares (150 acres) in the Napa Valley. This is divided into three blocks based on the property’s diverse terroir. Block A is situated on deep, sandy loam soils, and planted to Cabernet Sauvignon. Block B is predominantly Merlot with some Sauvignon Blanc, and Block C is planted to a mix of other varieties. All of Larkmead’s wines are made entirely from estate vineyard fruit, and the company also sells fruit to several other prestigious wine producers in Napa.
