Winemaker Notes

Our inaugural release of Barrett & Barrett is deep ruby in color with aromas of red currants, blackberry, plum, 5-spice and an exotic floral note. The flavors and mouth feel definitely have the "wow" factor. Amazing density, ripeness and finesse, flavors are layered black fruits-berry, cherry, plum with refined textural tannins difficult to achieve. French oak adds nuance without overpowering this very luxurious Napa Valley Estate Cabernet. This wine brings together the best joint efforts of this husband and wife winemaking team and we proudly share it with you. In the end, the wine shows both of our signatures, as reflected on the label. The wine displays perfect balance and polish through Heidi's winemaking methods, and the distinctive vineyard-driven core that Bo is known for. It is truly a collaboration of our years of experience, and it shows in the glass.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon is impeccable from start to finish. It reveals gorgeous, well-delineated aromatics and expressive dark red fruit. Tobacco, spices, leather and licorice are some of the nuances that develop in the glass. This is a gorgeous, beautifully balanced wine made in an accessible, fruit-forward style. It should drink well for the next decade or so.
WS 92
Wine Spectator
Beautifully crafted, tight and dense, offering fine-grained tannins wrapped around dark berry, espresso, cedar and mocha, with a long, persistent, chewy finish that reverberates with flavor. Best from 2013 through 2023. 300 cases made.

Napa Valley

Cabernet Sauvignon

View all products

One of the most prestigious wines of the world capable of great power and grace, Napa Valley Cabernet is a leading force in the world of fine, famous, collectible red wines. Today the Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without the other. But it wasn’t until the 1970s that this marriage came to light; sudden international recognition rained upon Napa with the victory of the Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars 1973 Cabernet Sauvignon in the 1976 Judgement of Paris.

Cabernet Sauvignon undoubtedly dominates Napa Valley today, covering half of the land under vine, commanding the highest prices per ton and earning the most critical acclaim. Cabernet Sauvignon’s structure, acidity, capacity to thrive in multiple environs and ability to express nuances of vintage make it perfect for Napa Valley where incredible soil and geographical diversity are found and the climate is perfect for grape growing. Within the Napa Valley lie many smaller sub-AVAs that express specific characteristics based on situation, slope and soil—as a perfect example, Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
