Tasting Notes

Vinous 94

The 2014 Firebelle, Larkmead’s Merlot-based wine, is terrific. Succulent black cherry, lavender, mint and dark spices infuse this pliant, creamy wine. Expressive savory and mineral-infused notes punctuate the finish. The tannins need time to soften, but there is plenty to like and look forward to. [Antonio Galloni, 01/12/2016]

Anticipated maturity: 2017-2029

Robert Parker 94

The 2014 Firebelle Proprietary Red breaks the Cabernet Sauvignon stronghold for wines from Larkmead, with a blend of 72% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Petit Verdot aged in 65% new French oak. It shows sexy, opulent, chocolaty, mocha and cocoa notes, supple, silky tannins, a heady, plush, almost Pommerol-like fatness and succulence in a pure, long finish. This will be drinkable in at least a year or two and evolve gracefully for at least a decade or more. [Robert M. Parker, Jr., 10/28/2015]
