2016 BARBOUR VINEYARDS Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

Look no further for a heavenly 2016!

Jim Barbour, master grape grower, teamed up with Celia Welch, winemaking extraordinaire, to create a world-class Cabernet.  If we had to choose a current favorite, we’d put this one right up at the top.  Unbelievable juice, dedication to quality, and pure specialness is what comes wrapped in this gorgeous bottle of Barbour.

Jim and Celia’s 2016 is a show-stopper.  From Jim’s vineyard in St. Helena, this is one of the best Cabs they’ve ever produced.  The vineyard always seems to yield spectacular fruit with a very lifted, slightly perfumed flair to the purple boysenberry and blackberry notes.  This vintage seems to emphasize those aromatic qualities even more intensely.  Notes of plum, cinnamon, nutmeg and sweet earth add 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 aromas, with forward, juicy fruit notes.  Less than 300 cases produced.  Reg. $149.95, call for exclusive pricing.
