The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon is surprisingly powerful. It has closed down quite a bit since I tasted it last year, which is a great sign for the future. Black fruit, cassis, licorice and spice box all jump from the glass in an intense Cabernet full of personality. The 2009 is loaded with tremendous potential, but its best days are still at least a few years away. This full-bodied, rich, enveloping wine is striking today. Anticipated maturity: 2019-2029.
Known as a superstar winemaking couple, Bo and Heidi Barrett have teamed up together for their very own project. While Bo comes from the famous Barrett's of Napa Valley, known for their wining Chardonnay in The Judgement of Paris in the 1970s, Heidi came to Napa Valley in the early 90s, helping to start some of the greatest cult wineries Napa had ever seen. The grapes in the Cabernets of Barrett and Barrett are hailing from the Barrett family plot, planted on volcanic soils within St. Helena in 1989. The site is across from the famous family owned Chateau Montelena, and the land is precious to the family. The first release was in 2008, and each vintage proves to be wholly Napa Valley.
