Larkmead Vineyards Red Bordeaux Blend Napa Valley Firebelle 2008

Member Review by Eric Guido:

The nose showed cherry and black currant with mint, spice, chalky minerals, waxy notes and a hint of underbrush. On the palate, it was velvety smooth yet juicy with a hint of sweetness to it's black currant fruit, exotic spice and vanilla. The finish was long, long, long with blackberry, currant and a hint of citrus.

The nose showed black currant, cherry liquor, spice, brown sugar and a hint of fresh-turned soil. On the palate, it was velvety smooth and luxuriant with blackberry jam, cherry wood and spice. The finish was exceptionally long with blackberry and currant fruit, yet fresh and begging for another sip.

An excellent wine for a special occasion and matches up nicely with nearly any food pairing. Dark fruit and currant preserves on wheat toast up front, Just a hint of sidewalk chalk on the finish. Color me pleased.
