Winemaker Notes

Dark garnet core, brilliant clarity in the glass. Intense, effusively luscious flavors of ripe red berries with caramelised notes of fig, cherry, and plum, elegantly woven together in barrel. Long-finishing and tannically vivid, yet with a remarkably soft palate.

Try pairing with braised veal roast served with baby vegetables, tagliolini with breast of duck ragu or roasted lamb with rosemary and garlic over soft polenta.

RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2016 Cabernet Franc Reserve (it also has 10% Petit Verdot) was aged for 12 months in used wood of varying ages, most three to five years. It comes in at 13% alcohol. This is along the lines of the 2015, but it seems to have a bit more depth. It is not as good as the 2015 today—they are both unevolved, but the 2015 has had time to settle down a little—but this will eventually be the better of the duo, its mid-palate better able to counter the tannins. As with the 2015, this is more about black currant than green fruits. It is very well done and should have a long life ahead. It is a nice value.

Barboursville Vineyards Winery Image
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.
