no formal notes but a bit lacking in density and texture, plenty of freshness, 14.7% ABV, consumed from a magnum

M+ tannins, blackberries, dark cherries, black plum, cherries, strawberries come on late, expresso roast, leathery, medium spice, dry dark soil, dry red florals, cigar with ash, dry stems, acid is good but there is still a fair amount of tension in this wine, good structure, length and balance with a dry tannin finish. Needs 5-8 years before you want to open one and will last another 7 plus years.

I tasted a ridiculous amount of good wine tonight. Hopefully these notes make sense! This was my first introduction to Larkmead, and what an introduction it was. For a Napa cab, this was very heavy on the red fruits. Lots of cherries, almost sweet tart candy. Balanced integration of oak. I'd like to try some older bottles of this.

Drinks like a ripe Bordeaux. Varietally correct black currants and eucalyptus are accompanied by lush, blueberry fruit, cedar, vanilla, with an incredible depth and and an acidity that gives way to a lingering finish. As good as Napa gets.

2013 Cabernet Sauvignon - Outstanding vino, with hints of pepper and cherry or plum. A robust wine that I anticipate enjoying again. Great with a ribeye! :)
