Barnett Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Spring Mountain District 2002
"An immense, rich and concentrated style that packs in loads of fresh currant, plum, wild berry and mineral flavors offset by spicy, toasty, cedary oak, finishing with a long, complex, integrated aftertaste that’s balanced and well-proportioned... 92." WS, 12/20/04. "The flagship offering, the deep ruby/purple-tinged... boasts a terrific perfume of black currants, flowers, earth, and spice. With a structured, full-bodied mouthfeel, this brilliant, pure, noble Cabernet is very long in the mouth... 93." WA 157.
External Reviews for Barnett Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Spring Mountain District
The 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon Spring Mountain (2,411 cases) exhibits a big, spicy, smoky nose with plenty of plum, raisin, and black currant fruit. Evolved and complex, with a supple texture as well as resiny pine forest notes intermixed with black currants and sweet cherries, this distinctive, singular Cabernet may be controversial, but it will provide plenty of pleasure over the next 5-7 years.
The flagship offering the deep ruby/purple-tinged 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon Rattlesnake Hill (451 cases) boasts a terrific perfume of black currants flowers earth and spice. With a structured full-bodied mouthfeel this brilliant pure noble Cabernet is very long in the mouth. It is still extremely young and far less evolved than its siblings. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2017. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
