I quite like O’Shaughnessy, but these days I probably prefer DiCostanzo for Napa cab. At a higher price point, slight preference for Larkmead and O’Shaughnessy as well. — a year ago

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

This bottle was the first from a case that was purchased direct from the winery on release about ten years ago. The 2007 Napa Valley designation Cabernet Sauvignon received over a third of its fruit from the Larkmead Vineyard and the quality shows. The color was a deep, dark, glass staining garnet with no obvious signs of age. On the nose, this was a powerful tobacco bomb with other delightful secondary characteristics such as earth and olives peaking through the curtain of opulent fruit. The palate was treated to all of the lushness and ripeness I have come to expect from the 2007 vintage in Napa valley; a velvet glove of sweet red and black fruits, leather and baking spices. Tannins are well integrated at this point and this is firing on all cylinders. Anyone with well stored examples of these will be well rewarded on the pop and pour. Drink now and over the next few years. — 3 years ago

Nice. I thought Ramey had a 100% Larkmead bottling in that year that I remember was outstanding.

@Eric Bass you might be right. I know he had a series of Larkmead Vineyard Cabernets in the mid-2000’s. I’m not so sure he does that anymore.

Solari Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Complete review later, more wines to come with dinner.....yikes!

Later:
Nose of blackberry, pine, oak, pencil lead. Taste of silky blackberry, spice, minerals, crushed gravel, dark chocolate and tea. Young, give it a little more time.
