2017 Barrett & Barrett Cabernet Sauvignon - 1 Bottle
The 2017 Barrett & Barrett Cab is a deeply hued garnet color, with gorgeous aromas of black cherry, cassis, wild blackberry, black tea, and a complex floral note, layered and enhanced by French Oak nuances. Across the palate, it’s luxurious and elegant, yet powerful, with flavors to match the aromatics. Flavors linger with a long balanced profile that expands as the wine continues to open. While delicious and impressive now, it will also be a wine that can age and bring enjoyment for many years to come.
From the critics:
From Vinous: "Quite delicate... Bright red-toned fruit, spice, cedar and pipe tobacco all lend notable brightness. In most vintages, the Barrett & Barrett has been a pretty somber, muscular wine, but the 2017 is decidedly gracious to the point of being understated. It is a very pretty wine, but also quite atypical. 94 points" - Antonio Galloni
From James Suckling: "A powerful, full-bodied red with lots of cloves, nutmeg and a hint of cardamon spice, alongside black plum, blackcurrant and dark chocolate. Fine, slightly chalky tannins and chewy toffee on the finish. 93 points"
