  • Larkmead Vineyards Tocai Friulano Napa Valley 2010


    The nose was rich yet fresh like spring with a bouquet of white flowers, minerals, apricot, almonds and butter. On the palate it was full and luxurious with inner floral and spice notes, a hint of herbs and white pit fruits. It coated the palate before being wisp'd away by the wines vibrant acidity. The finish was long with lingering flowers and... Read More

    Nicely aromatic with notes of tree bark, herb and a hint of minty spice accenting the pear and white peach fruit. A lot of trapped CO2 here lends this a bit of a spritz on the palate. Nice, fairly rich feel in the mouth, this has classic bitter apple, pear, almond and subtle herb flavors. The acid is bright but well integrated lending this a lar... Read More

    Nice! Crisp, clean on front of palate, then shows some body with stone fruit, apricot, minerals, and just a touch of butter/tree nuts. Nose is all peach,apricot, minerals. What an interesting wine that I just keep drinking. Very nice with grilled fish and spicy food. Read More
