July 26, 2016 - Very good Napa Cab. PnP. Full bodied. Smooth. Good fruit but not overripe. Had similar characteristics as the 2009 Shafer Hillside Select that was also consumed.

April 26, 2016 - 2008 Napa Valley Cabernet Night (Lincoln Squre Steaks, Amsterdam Ave, New York City): This drank so much better than my last bottle. It was a little heavier than the Larkmead and not as well balanced, but still a very enjoyable wine.
April 17, 2016 - Unfortunately, this bottle was corked. Have 1 more left, hope it is better!

April 11, 2016 - Dinner at Bistro Le Steak. Popped and poured. The 2nd wine we opened, the first being a 2010 Larkmead Firebelle.
The wine seemed a little flat, I'm a big fan of the One Point Five wines, but I'm wondering if its in or just past its prime drinking window. I will be opening up another 2008 later this month, it will be interesting to see how that bottle tastes. I have older and younger vintages of this wine in the past 12 months, and this was the least impressive bottle I've had.
