This is a beautiful California pinot very floral without being too fruit forward. Drinking wonderful but has time too. Love this wine and wine maker.

This wine is a true Syrah, beautiful, complex and not too fruit forward. This has time.

Drinking very nicely, tobacco, chocolate. Great mouth feel, bit short on the finish but still in good shape. Enjoy or sit on this beauty.

Rich purple hue, not showing its age in the glass. Hints of chocolate and blackberries, strong tannins, still a nice wine with a lingering but short finish. Don't hold this too long.

PNP, nice nose, some fruit left but light finish. Low tannns. Tastes like a well put together wine but lacks the richness we expect from Howell Mtn and 15 yrs. Drink now!

Still a beautiful Rutherford cab. Fruit is a bit gone but this wine still has a lovely nose and smooth finish with relaxed tannins. Enjoy this one sooner than later.

full of citrus fruits and nice long finish. Enjoyed after a Meursault. In love with France at the moment.

This is drinking beautifully at the moment. Quick under 30 minute decant, color was a deep garnet good mineral and earth tones.

This has aged beautifully, some fruit but all the layers of cabernet one would expect from this wine and winemaker. Open this now and enjoy.

100% agreed with first two reviews, well priced for Howell Mtn juice, nice young wine. Will age beautifully, hope to find more.

This is still drinking beautiful, the cork fell apart and we almost lost hope. Last bottle enjoyed in 2020, may my dad Rest In Peace for leaving this gem for us. We love Larkmead.

Might have waited a bit too long, fruit was flat or gone. Bit acidic.

Enjoyed after dinner, a lot of fruit left, tobacco and other earthy notes. For a 2011 this is a beautiful wine. Wish we had more.

This has aged nicely. Beautiful ruby color and nice long finish, plenty of fruit left. A 30 minute decant but definitely has plenty of shelf life left.

Poured through Vinturi and drank with very little air time. Very smooth and getting better. Definitely not too late, drinking window too tight in CT?

Beautiful nose, uninspiring finish until it opened up. Open a good hour before to decant and don't wait this is ready to enjoy.

Enjoyed with Sushi. Wine is ready right NOW! First taste was not inspiring, no finish. After 20 minutes was completely ready to enjoy.
