Producer Notes

Still tight. Beginning to show some mint through black fruit and medium oak. Hold.

Dark, almost black color. Still on the young side. A bit closed, but with blackcurrant with mint and hints of oak on the nose. Close to full body. Quit lounge aftertaste. A promising wine for the patient. Wait another 5 years.

An opaque, flashy young Barton that had one of the more intriguing noses of the evening, showcasing vogue notions of incense, clove, sweet spice, cedar and licorice over a bed of dark, tannic fruit. The wine is very structured, w/ an immense backbone of slightly drying tannins that should hopefully give way to a bit more generosity and pleasure down the road.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
