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 Read more »

  • Barnett Vineyards Chardonnay Sangiacomo Vineyard 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Easy to detect oak-induced butter on the nose. However, on the tongue, worries of too much oak subside. Peach and kiwi flavors emerge. A slight suggestion of caramel. Then a bit of lemony acid. Generally, the kind of Chardonnay I enjoy. I agree that this is, certainly, not a long ager, but it is, currently, nowhere near a downward slope. Read More

  • Sometimes we get used to paying upwards of $100 for a nice bottle of wine from the wine shop.  Those are the 'good days' that we want to remember, but soon you notice your bank account is dropping faster than Trumps approval rating, so you start looking for more value-oriented wines that are tasty in their own right.This topic is all about value...

  • Getting back to wine for a moment, last night we hosted a wine dinner with our neighbors Debbie and Rick.  They brought over two bottles, a Napa Merlot (2014 Arietta Merlot Hudson Vineyards) and an Anderson Valley Pinot Noir (2015 Twomey Pinot Noir).  We started with that Trump Blanc de Blanc that was given to us last month (I didn't like it muc...

  • What about Barnett Vineyards?   We just received our shipment of 2013 cabs and they are sure to be tasty.  I think the Barnetts we have in our cellar are our premium wines, only to be opened with permission from my spousal unit (Sandra).  Are we only talking about the very high end Cabernet Sauvignon here?  I do love the Heitz wines too.   Read More
