2014 Barrett & Barrett Cab Magnum 1.5L in Wood, Signed
The 2014 is deep dark ruby in color, almost black in the glass. It shows intense deep aromatics of concentrated blackberry, currants, lush toasty oak, and caramel. A bit of cocoa powder and spice. Across the palate it is compact and action packed, full of flavor, and everything needed for amazing ageability. An intensely opulent wine, with a rich layered texture and a long lingering finish. Tannins are refined and textural, offering wonderful structure for the perfectly ripe fruit. Lovely balance while very young for a wine of this style - will be even more stunning in a few years.
