The biggest beast of the line up of a 2014 horizontal of Heidi's wines I recently tried. I really would like to see this with a lot of time. WAY too young here and tannins that would rip your face off. There's an underlying depth, but it's hidden.

Have a few cases as overpaid when released! 😣 but the 08 maiden vintage was still the best...they tried to take on SE but never got traction. Layers with lots of glycerine...structured and deep fruit. Hope it develops well as I can't sell it!

Simplicity perfected. Big cab with dry tannins and full body.

Its got power and finesse, rich texture, I can see the layers will develop nicely over the years.

As soon as I write a blog post about why I'm not the biggest fan of Napa Cab I start finding a few I love. Coincidence? I think not.

Interesting to try another Heidi Barrett mountain top Cab. Absolutely does not disappoint - rich, layered fruit.
