Powerful Black fruit, cassis, licorice and spice box all intensely revealed on the nose. This 2009 is loaded with personality and tremendous potential. The rich, full-bodied Cabernet is enjoyable now, but will peak in the next 8-10 years.
Barrett and Barrett, a collaboration of Heidi and Bo Barrett, two renowned & distinct wine stylists working together, finally, is really what this wine is all about. The result is a handcrafted, limited edition Napa Valley wine that reflects their two different, yet complementary, winemaking styles.
Bo is responsible for "farming for flavor" throughout the growing season. Bo’s experience growing Cabernet in these Calistoga vineyards since 1973 draws upon decades of experience to get the grapes to their maximum potential for each harvest. Whether it’s a very hot vintage or a slow cool one, after 35 years Bo has probably seen it before and knows how to get the grapes ready for the vintage.
