Barnett Vineyards Estate Bottled Rattlesnake Hill Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

$174.99

One of highest-scoring Cabernets of the stellar 2013 vintage - limited.98+ Points Robert Parker: "The opaque blue/purple color jumps from the glass of the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Rattlesnake, a 100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in 90% new French oak. A nose of white flowers, blueberries, blackberries, cassis should make this one of the most profound Rattlesnake Cabernet Sauvignons made yet at Barnett Vineyards. Gorgeous purity, fabulous balance, a full-bodied mouthfeel and multi-dimensional texture result in a compelling Cabernet Sauvignon to drink over the next 25 years."Barnett Vineyards is located off of the narrow windy Spring Mountain Road which connects Napa and Sonoma Counties – about 1.5 miles in. This is a small estate winery (founded in 1983 by Hal & Fiona Barnett) located on very steep hillsides with slopes up to 35%! Their original intent was never to build a winery but rather to have a weekend private getaway location from San Francisco. For a fairly small production they make a wide variety of wines – as of our latest visit, 11 different wines are made here. They are strong believers in unique terroir sites and will source fruit from a variety of locations (not necessarily within Napa) based on where specific varietals grow best.

Has the distinctive mountain fruit nose. Ripe concentrated black cherry and bittersweet chocolate on the front of the palate. Back of the palate you get this espresso and black fruit that rolls into a loamy smoked finish.

Great Rattlesnake Cab... 98 pointer from Parker or James Suckling, but I was very surprised how present the tannins were. Jammy, velvety Spring Mountain fruit, but long tannic finish. Very enjoyable, but still needs more time in the bottle.

My favorite Spring Mountain winery and my favorite wine from them. Top of the mountain on steep slopes. Got introduced to them personally 12 years ago, and have been a fan ever since. Deep color, garnet rim, balanced and medium tannin.
