About

95

"Made by superstar winemaker Celia Welch (this wine was made by Heidi Barrett up until 2009), the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is an elegant, layered, ultra-fine Cabernet Sauvignon that has classic cassis, graphite, and crushed rock aromas and flavors. Coming from estate fruit in St. Helena, it’s a powerful, young, concentrated, and primordial 2016 that’s begging for bottle age. Give it 4-5 years and enjoy over the following two decades."

Product Description:

"Barbour Vineyard in St. Helena always seems to yield spectacular fruit with a very lifted, slightly perfumed flair to the purple boysenberry and blackberry notes. The 2016 vintage seems to emphasize those lifted, aromatic qualities even more intensely. In addition to the purple fruit, notes of plum, cinnamon, nutmeg, and sweet earth add complexity. The mouthfeel is full, fruit-forward and elegant, with approachable tannins and just enough grip to lend weight to the core. The finish echoes the aroma, with forward, juicy fruit notes." - Winery
