    May 19, 2021 - decanted 30 min. completely ready to go & a very good napa valley floor representation; an above average cab at its price point since its youth. deep & juicy, blackcurrant & weedy, tannins resolved.

    may not ever attain particular complexity, or elevated personality, but still a good drink

    prime burger 'holstein'; garlicky escarole w/lemon & dijon

    March 25, 2021 - I thought this was a fabulous bottle of Larkmead after decanting it for an hour. It's still bright and fresh and has a terrific bouquet. Ready for prime time!

    February 24, 2021 - Decanted for sediment. Dark crimson color. Great nose out of the gate with cocoa dusted black fruits, cassis, hints of purple florals, a bit of toasty oak and vanilla. Similar flavors on the palate with a good amount of fresh blackberry and cassis and some creamy oak notes. Silky mouthfeel with medium+ acid and integrated tannins. Long finish. This is drinking great right now. Surprised there wasn't more development at this point but the pure fruit is really delicious and the tannins have softened nicely. Lovely cabernet.

    December 3, 2020 - This rich Cabernet has gained more secondary flavors (particularly, olive and gravel) that suggest its future is more savory in nature. Garnet in color; medium in body; somewhat muted aromas of blueberry peel and gravel. Flavors of blackberry, graphite, tapenade, and ribeye, with an integrated and lingering finish. Blend of 96% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Merlot, and 1% Cabernet Franc. 14.5% alcohol.

    A wine in transition, this should be opened in the next few years if you want the fruit, but it has the balance to offer a more unrepentant Old World profile in 2022 or later. (The original release note said it could be opened until 2020, but I think this will last longer.) I'd like some more freshness, but it's a solid and tasty wine.
