This inky concentrated blend of cab sauv/franc is so suave, smooth straight out of bottle, which is amazing for such a a young bottle. Loved every sip, from the initial encounter 'til the wine evolved an hour after the uncorking. Reminded me of a 1990 Ch. Leoville Las Cases, a second growth Bordeaux which throws punches way above its weight class and coming from me, a truly high complement for a Napa cab blend.

Larkmead nailed it in 2013! The nose on the LMV Salon showed intense red raspberry, minerals, blueberry skins, sweet tobacco and minty herbs. On the palate, it displayed silky textures with pulsing minerality contrasted by ripe fruits. Black currant, cherry, and blueberry were all present, yet seemed to play in perfect unison. A sensation of classic structure and tannin defined the finish, along with notes of cherry, herbs, minerals, and dark chocolate. Simply gorgeous.

Cranberry, cherry, floral and baking spice. Hint of green pepper that is beautifully integrated. M acid, m+ body and tannin. Black cherry, plum, chocolate, mint and sweet tobacco. Long finish. Balanced. Still big. Just needs time.

Old school Napa cab (blend) just how I love it. Savory refined restrained and balanced.

Still primal but already drinking so nicely. 75% cab 25% cab franc. This has a long life ahead of it if I can keep my hands off it.

Cinnamon and oak and brown sugar. Lovely tannins from the petit Verdot. A little off balance - probably due to youth.
