The Barbour Estate Cabernet is amazingly opulent from start to finish. The wine’s aromas of black stone fruit, anise, mocha and chocolate jump out of the glass on impact. This full-bodied wine is loaded with generously layered dark berry, plum, chocolate and exotic spices that tickle the lush concentrated palate. A MUST HAVE WINE 4 THE CELLAR!
Tasting Notes: “Barbour Vineyard in St. Helena always seems to yield spectacular fruit with a very lifted, slightly perfumed flair to the purple boysenberry and blackberry notes. The 2019 Cabernet seems to emphasize those lifted, aromatic qualities even more intensely. In addition to the purple fruit, notes of plum, chocolate, and dark cocoa show off this youngest’s complexity. The mouthfeel is full, fruit-forward and elegant, with approachable tannins and just enough grip to lend weight to the core. The finish echoes the aroma, with forward, juicy fruit notes.
Celia Welch Notes: “Harvested by-hand from grapes grown on our dry-farmed vineyard, the 2019 vintage of Barbour Cabernet Sauvignon has aromas of cassis, cherry and plum hints of sweet cocoa, black currant. The palate is expansive and full with present but approachable tannins with a silky, but seductive quality. The wine is loaded with dark fruit flavors that dominate throughout, leading into a lengthy finish.”
