Barbour Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

Barbour Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

#BAR11CS3 | 750mL

I was able to taste this new vintage release during Premiere Napa Valley 2014 barrel tasting and auction event. This was one of the best Cabernets showing at the tasting. Celia Welch, winemaker for Barbour (along with her own wine Corra, Scarecrow and Keever to name a few) used 60% new French oak and aged it for 20 months before bottling. Coming from Jim Barbour's own vineyard in St. Helena, which is just south of our DEAN & DELUCA store, this 350-case production showcased dark red, candied cherry layered with graphite and vanilla. -Kerrin Laz, Wine Director
