2013 Barrett & Barrett Cab 3 pack
Re-tasted in 2023, the 2013 Barrett & Barrett Cab is dark and dense – concentrated black fruit character on the nose, cassis syrup and blackberry as well as some bright raspberry. Intense and bold. The warm ripe berry flavors are balanced with strong earthy mineral character as well as notes of kalamata olive, pie spice, and French oak. One of our more structured vintages, the tannins are still somewhat tight and can benefit from time to open in the glass, or some additional time in the cellar.
3 bottles in wood box
From the critics:
From Vinous: "...Hits the senses with power and intensity. Vertical, structured and remarkably vivid in the glass, the 2013 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 2013 is going to need at least a few years to fully come together, but it is magnificent, even at this early stage. 97+ points" - Antonio Galloni
From The Wine Advocate: "...Concentrated... showing loads of blackberry fruit, incense, charcoal embers, subtle oak and a nice, earthy, ripe, blackberry and cassis scented nose and flavors. This should drink well for 25-30 years. 95 points" - Robert Parker
