Winemaker's Notes:

A full-bodied red wine produced from 20-year old vines. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged 24 months in imported barrels, fined with traditional egg whites, bottled and aged 1 more year prior to release. Complex, rich with classic characteristics of this variety of grape. Plum, blackberry, spiced vanilla, smoked cherry and a hint of chocolate. Supple texture, good aging potential. Serve at 68° F.
My Notes:

About Barboursville Vineyards:

The estate winery and vineyards are located on 830 acres of beautiful rolling hills near the Blue Ridge Mountains. We presently have 90 acres of vineyards and continue to expand. Under the direction of Luca Paschina, General Manager and winemaker, Barboursville consistently produces quality wines that have won international recognition. The Zonin family of Italy, brought their strong commitment to produce quality wines to Virginia in 1976. They were the first in the state to plant and successfully establish the revered vitis vinifera vines. The four Zonin brothers, proprietors of the largest Italian privately held wine company, descend from a family that has for centuries been wed to viticulture.
