Winemaker's Notes

100% Cabernet Sauvignon.Wonderful spice, toasted brown sugar, oriental tea and flowers sit atop of deep black fruit aromas with a mouthfilling velvety structure with the same black fruit and spice flavors.

Critical Acclaim

"Saturated medium ruby. Cassis, blueberry, black cherry and tarry oak on the nose. Suave and silky, with a sappy sweetness and noteworthy intensity. Dark berry flavors complicated by notes of dark chocolate and licorice. Finishes with excellent persistence and a note of tarry oak.
Range: 88-91"

Learn About Barnett Map ItMap It

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.
