Winemaker's Notes:

This elegant Pinot is medium ruby in color, and immediately gratifying in the perfume, spring rain and violet floral aromas that fill the glass. Fresh cherries and white pepper spice as well as gravel minerality and black tea are also prevalent. The mouth feel is fleshy, deceivingly full given the color. Brown sugar and crushed red currant are abundant on the palate, with soft tannin and firm acid rounding out the wine. This beautifully balanced wine will age gracefully over the next 7 years, from 2009 to 2016.

About Barnett Vineyards:

Barnett Vineyards is located at the top of Spring Mountain with spectacular views of the Napa Valley 1700' below. Founded in 1983 by Fiona and Hal Barnett, this rocky mountainside is ideal for Cabernet Sauvignon and the blending varietals of Merlot and Cabernet Franc. In 1984, the first vines were planted in terraced rows with total plantings numbering fourteen acres by 1988. The vines yield an average of less than two tons of fruit per acre resulting in rich, intense wines that have become synonymous with the Barnett name.
