External Reviews for Barnett Vineyards Merlot Spring Mountain District
Since the first vintage of Barnett Vineyards, Spring Mountain has proven to deserve it's own AVA and become known as a unique mesoclimate, producing exceptional Cabernet Sauvignons and Merlots.
WS 90 WE 91 Pts - Tasting Notes - The wine has a deep purple core and medium purple rim. Ripe pomegranate and dark cherry are immediate on the nose, followed by granite, earl gray tea spice and crushed violets. The palate is full in body, typical to form for quality merlot. Graphite minerality and earth are prevalent on the mid palate but not as intense as the black cherry, licorice and pepper. The finish is very persistent, with lingering coffee and black cherry. Rated 90+

...lively, intense and firmly tannic, presenting a core of black currant, fresh herb, pencil lead and plum flavors. Turns rustic on the finish, where the tannins display an earthy, minerally character. Wine Spectator. A Merlot wine from California in USA. 2000 Barnett Vineyards Merlot Napa 750ml
