Larkmead Firebelle Meritage Napa 2007

Member Review by Eric Guido:

Deep purple color at it's core which fades to dark ruby red at the edges. The aromatics are intense and rich but at the same time fresh with aromas of dusty red fruit, wild berries and a floral nose that swings through violets, mint and lavender. All of this with a hint butterscotch that lingers with each sniff. On the palate you find a mouth coating yet utterly electric collection of flavors. Blueberries and black currants with herbs and earth. Mocca and dark fruits on the long finish. Well Done.

This is a very complex wine with dark fruit, berries, and violet notes on the nose. On entry there is a blackberry followed by bit of earth, spice, and tobacco. This wine took around five hours to fully open up but it was definitely worth the wait.
