2011 Barrett & Barrett Cab Sauv Magnum 1.5L

2011 Barrett & Barrett Cab Sauv Magnum 1.5L

Re-tasted in early 2023 - Perhaps the coolest vintage in Napa’s post-2000 history, 2011 is an outlier in Barrett & Barrett's lineage -  It stands out as a softer vintage, not quite as pronounced or bold in aroma or palate. Graceful, understated, refined – a beautifully made wine from a challenging vintage. Fruit notes are cranberry, pomegranate, raspberry, with characteristics of black tea, graphite, wet stone, herbs, and a touch of chalky dust. Much lighter in texture, it has a supple feel and good weight – it opens with a restrained and lightly perfumed nose, flows gently with silkiness on the palate, and fades with a nuanced, medium length finish. It can benefit from time to open in the glass, but it is a rather delicate wine, so we would caution against aggressive decanting. Drink now or hold 3 years

From the critics:

From Vinous: "Firm tannins support a core of dark red and black fruit, smoke, tobacco, licorice and iron in a dark, powerful Cabernet... Sage, rosemary and intense layers of minerality flow through to the finish. This is a strong showing for the year. 93+ points" - Antonio Galloni
