Dull, mute at first. Raisins, prunes. Blossomed in the glass. Nice perfume emerges. Berries
OK acidity. Thick. Surprisingly fresh. Very astringent

First vintage. Very nice extraction, big hillside cab structure, full mouthfeel, finish is surprisingly brief.

First, this wine needs a lot of time to open up, as in 3+ hours. At first the tannins prevailed, then integrated well. Nose of straight blueberry, no question. Tight structure that is built for the ages. Dried currant, loamy earth and dark berry. Incense and charcoal round out the finish.

This Is the first vintage of Bo and Heidi Barretts first collaboration together as Co-Winemakers. Fitting we had in honor of them during the horrific fires in our valley. #napastrong #sonomastrong #onevalley

I broke my face smiling so hard and could not leave a post last night because

THIS WAS BIG BOLD and BEAUTIFUL and thus was SO DAMN GOOD

Bring with me to FL

I am in love with the name Barrett - color hypnotizes me with dark insane luscious purplish red - the smell jumps at me with ninja like moves that look like artist performing Kung Fu - the taste reminds me Sade singing - just really makes me relax and feel - and the finish is all smiles

Juicy and jammy dark fruits. Nice tannins will age for a long time but drinkable now.

Nose closed. Some green on the palate. Balanced I guess ok.

Really loved this. Possibly a little brett? Maybe that’s why I liked it so. Another big, luscious wine.
