LARKMEAD Red Wine, Napa Valley 'Firebelle' 2017

The 2017 Firebelle is absolutely brilliant in this vintage. This elegant red is composed of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, which spent 19 months in 75% New Tonnellerie Bossuet. It begins with pretty aromatics of bright red berries and cherries along with exotic spices, herbs, mint, spring flowers, and licorice which all develop beautifully in the glass. On the palate this possesses a gorgeous medium-bodied fame, with a beautiful velvety mouthfeel that is well-structured with polished tannins and a core of fresh ripe red and dark fruits which are accented by lovely mineral character. It shows incredible freshness and verve through the mouthwatering finish. This is an absolutely beautiful wine which seems to impress more with each minute in the glass, and it should also go on to evolve gracefully over the course of the next decade.
