    November 27, 2019 - opaque purple; blackberries, mint, tobacco leaf, violets, graphite; dark fruit, anise, slight herbaceousness, crushed gravel reminiscent of an Old World wine; 100% Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from older vines, planted in Cortina Gravel, aged 17 months in 58% new French oak; the black label pays homage to Dr. Harold P. Olmo a UC Davis professor who conducted clonal trials on Larkmead's property in the 1940's and 50's; 14.7% ABV; $185

    November 16, 2019 - At the beginning of it's open stage. Very good full bodied Cali cab.

    April 19, 2019 - Very beautiful wine. The Cortina gravel style really comes through. Dark fruit, a touch of graphite. Despite its power, remarkably balanced. I feel this had potential for upper 90s in 8-10 years. Bravo!

    March 29, 2019 - Purple to the rim. Black fruit and minerals. Some upfront fruit but muted at present. Fine tannins with a long finish. Good now but better in a couple of years

    December 21, 2018 - Amazing taste, amazing grip. Like a cross between a Napa and an Italian. Interestingly, it had a little moment in the middle where it got muted and green. Thankfully that was short-lived. This was an amazing evening with a transcendent bottle.
