This was a past selection of Gold Medal Wine Club's Gold Series. The 2004 Barnwood, 3200' Cabernet Sauvignon is produced from the winery’s estate vineyard located 3200 feet above sea level. Right out-of-the-shoot, the 2004 Cabernet is compiling a portfolio of awards equal to earlier vintages. This rich, deep garnet colored cabernet was awarded a Gold Medal from the Critics Challenge International Wine Competition. Critic’s judge and San Francisco Chronicle wine writer Linda Murphy comments, “Black is always in style—black cherry, black licorice, tar and peppery spice.” And at the well-respected Beverage Testing Institute this delightful Cabernet walked away with a solid 88-Point rating. Ripe, firm tannins frame the fresh black plum and cassis flavors, giving it an excellent balance and soft-mid palate. Hints of cocoa and vanilla come through on the long, rich finish. Aged for 14 months in French Oak. 100% Estate Cabernet Sauvignon.
I enjoyed a few glasses of this wine while visiting Provincetown, MA. The mouth-drying tannins of this full bodied, Santa Barbera Cab create wonderful structure. The wine is surprisingly complex given its price point. I found the wine to taste distinctly of leather, with perhaps some oak on the nose. Beneath these primary flavors was mild-mannered plum and fig.
