This is everything you could want in a Spring Mountain Cabernet! Rich, refined tannins, great baking spice note, good underlying mineral character. The alcohol is a touch high.

Much improved since the last time I visited this. Rich and dense mountain fruit.

Holy smokes. Massive, sexy wine. This is just absolutely decadent. Indulging, but why not?

Attending the Cรดtes du Coeur in Dallas. Was asked to be a brand ambassador for Montagu Wines, so I get to pour this weekend! Last night was the grand tasting...out of 18 or so wineries, two really stood out.

This was so freaking good. I know
@Shawn R is a big fan of their stuff and this was my first time trying anything from Barnett (need to try their cab franc). This and the Macauley To Kalon were neck and neck for WOTN. Velvety in texture. Pure toasted oak, vanilla, black and blueberry pie. Superb balance.

Big red. Long ageing potential. Intense red fruit on the nose, a lot of almost sweet secondary aromas from oak on the palate. Needs to be paired with a meat sauce pasta or very succulent dishes. High tannins, very integrated.

Beautifully deep color with amazing aromatics of dried flowers, cedar and spices. A predictably full bodied hillside wine with tastes of chocolate covered cherries, licorice, currants and cedar that is silky smooth, elegant and complex. I love it.
