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.

Not a bargain but very well executed Napa can that doesn't feel like a sucker punch.

Stunning. Pure fruit, just a beauty and very drinkable at a young age I will be stocking up on this.

Decided to open a 2013 and compare with the 2012 I'd had recently. This one was definitely a younger wine, with flavors of red and black currants and notes of licorice and chocolate as well. The acidity and minerality is a bit forward for my tastes, but I'm sure will calm down with age. I still liked it a lot, but was wishing for the maturity of the 2012. This will be great in time. I just need to be more patient...
