2008 Larkmead "Firebelle" Napa Valley Red Blend

SKU #1112248 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2008 Firebelle (55% Merlot, 27% Cabernet Sauvignon and 18% Malbec; 1,050 cases produced) exhibits a dense opaque purple color as well as a sweet bouquet of creme de cassis, white chocolate and cocoa, great fruit, purity and intensity, a full-bodied, layered mouthfeel and elegance and finesse. Already evolved, complex and delicious, it should continue to drink well for a decade or more. This is an estate where the 2008 may actually eclipse the 2007. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2010)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Ruby-red. Plum, dark chocolate and licorice on the nose, plus a whiff of woodsmoke. Lush and sweet, with a distinctly glyceral texture and attractive gravelly lift to the dark raspberry and tobacco flavors. The tannins arrive late, allowing the wine to expand on the aftertaste. I like this. (ST) Inner quote mark (6/2011)

K&L Notes

Praise from Robert Parker: "When people talk about the greatest vineyards of Napa Valley, Larkmead has to be among the top half dozen or so terroirs." (12/2010)
