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.

Such a shame for a great staple vineyard in Napa. Is it just too young? This wine is very green. Incredibly tannic. Whole mouth puckers with each sip. Maybe it needs decanting.

This opened up with dark cherries, fresh soil and leather and then some moss and tobacco and touches of dark chocolate hit me as well. This was a good glass of wine. Seemed a bit tight and could used some time in a decanter which unfortunately we did not have time to do properly. I feel this is a strong wine that should be even better in a couple of years.

This was actually their Proprietary Red that I was sworn to secrecy on how I got my hands on it. Amazing! So much fun to drink!

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.
