This is a fully ripe, robust Cabernet that offers up a billowy bouquet of ripe black cherries, blackberry pie, and toasted pecan. Expansive on the palate with silky smooth tannins, it shows waves of fresh red and black fruit, cocoa, and anise, culminating in a succulent, toasty finish. This is a treat to drink now and will continue to give pleasure for another 5-7 years.
Jim Barbour was raised on his family's ranch in Rutherford where he learned the life of farming, a passion for land, and the understanding that hard work breeds success.
After graduating from the University of California at Davis, Jim returned to Napa Valley to begin a career that would lead him to become one of the valley's most sought-after viticulturists. For over 30 years, he has been dedicated to his craft, producing premium wine grapes using traditional and contemporary hand-farming methods. Jim has planted and managed many prominent vineyards in the valley, including Hundred Acre, Grace Family, Checkerboard, Blankiet, Revana, Gandona Estate, The Vineyardist, Keever, Husic, Pillar Rock, DR Stephens, and more.
In 1992, he planted his own vineyard and in 1995 produced his first vintage of Cabernet Sauvignon.
