With passion and patience, Fiona and Hal Barnett created this vineyard and winery in 1983 with the intent of producing small amounts of hand crafted Cabernet Sauvignon wines from their estate. Since the first vintage of Barnett Vineyards, Spring Mountain has proven to deserve it's own AVA and become known as a unique microclimate, producing exceptional Cabernet Sauvignons and Merlots. The vineyards are located at the top of Spring Mountain, at elevation 2,000ft, and planted on steep terraces that follow the contour of the land. In some places, the grade averages in excess of 35%. Mountainside farming is very challenging. The vines must struggle to reach nutrients and water in the soil and, as a result, yield only one to two tons per acre. The elements of sun, temperature, and well-drained porous soils give an advantageous water stress to the vines and contribute to the depth, richness and character of the wines. Grapes are harvested by hand; vineyard row by row, as optimum ripeness and maturity is reached. Fermentation is done in small batches. Since the winery's first 100 cases in 1989, Barnett Vineyards has grown to approximately 6,000 cases total production. Rattlesnake Hill and Spring Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignons are the focus at the estate with total Cabernet production varying between 2,100 and 3,000 cases annually. In addition, Barnett Vineyards produces limited amounts of Merlot, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grown from single vineyards located in well-desired appellations. Read less

A beauty, the deep, full-bodied 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Spring Mountain exhibits notes of blueberry pie, charcoal, wet steel, white flowers, and crushed rocks. Pure and dense, 2-3 years of bottle age is required, and it should keep for two decades. Firm, ripe, intense and spicy, with dried currant, berry, sage and mineral flavors that are tight, focused and well-structured, ending with an aftertaste of loamy earth. Best from 2011 through 2018. 1,855 cases made. -JL Medium ruby-red. Expressive aromas of crushed blackberry, blueberry, tobacco, earth, flowers and chocolatey oak. Juicy, sweet and pliant, with firm acidity framing the mountain berry flavors and providing verve. Not yet complex but high-toned in a positive way and quite young. Finishes with serious but sweet tannins. ** SOLD OUT **
