Larkmead Vineyards Tocai Friulano Napa Valley 2010

Member Review by Eric Guido:

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 spice notes. After this performance, I wish I had saved all my bottles from last summer.

It was hard to keep myself from asking for a refill. Talk about a delicate balance. The nose was rich with almond and lemon cookies. On the palate it was mouth coating with a medium body and showed pear, honeydew and white flowers. All of this was showcased with a level of acidity that kept all of its rich, full flavored components in check. It was a great example of what a skilled wine maker can do with this grape in Napa valley. From memory, I believe this came from very old vines. It was simply a great glass of win
