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

Wotn. Room consensus. More Bordeaux-ish, less Napa-ish

Thought this was a good choice while watching 'Decanted'. Thanks Heidi for the wine and movie recommendation.

The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon is drop-dead gorgeous, just as it was last year. A dark, sumptuous beauty, the 2010 bursts from the glass with super-ripe, racy fruit, tar, new leather and a melange of exotic spices. Firm tannins support a gorgeous finish in a structured, powerful Cabernet Sauvignon.

This wine drinks like a fine Bordeaux more than a cult Cali cab. It has a distinct burning ember note like a graves claret on the nose with tar and a hint of cedar. Black currant shows up on the palate of this big structured wine which needs lots of air or many more years in the cellar. Great wine I suspect it will get better with age
