Two of Napa’s best known faces, Heidi Barrett (Screaming Eagle, La Sirena, Amuse Bouche, etc) and Bo Barrett (Chateau Montelena) have been married for almost 30 years, but it took them almost that long before they put their winemaking heads together and created Barrett & Barrett.
Anthony Galloni 97+ Points:
“The Barrett & Barrett Cabernet Sauvignon hits the senses with power and intensity. Vertical, structured and remarkably vivid in the glass, it is simply fabulous. A host of crushed rocks, game, smoke, black cherry and crème de cassis come to life as this massive, vertically built Cabernet Sauvignon shows off its personality. Virile and imposing, the Barrett & Barrett is going to need at least a few years to fully come together, but it is magnificent, even at this early stage.”
Heidi & Bo Barrett Notes:
“This 2016 is a huge expression of Cabernet Sauvignon from this vintage, an absolutely gorgeous example of powerful Napa Valley fruit. A deep, dark black ruby in color, it gives layers of rich, perfumed aromas that continue to develop in the glass over time. Deep, intense notes of cassis, mocha, blackberry pie, and toasty sweet French oak. Explosive flavors follow the amazing aromatics. Luscious and dense texture across the palate with moderate, chewy tannins and great length in the finish. It’s the best possible combination of power and elegance. Extremely concentrated, voluptuous, and certain to be a great bottle for your cellar for years to come. Don’t miss it!”
