Professional Reviews For This Wine

Vinfolio | Rating: 93

Lapsang tea, mint, sassafras in the nose with an entry of smooth, dark black fruit, plum and cherry. A touch of cedary spice on the long, fruity finish.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 88

I expected the 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon to be significantly better than the 2000. However, it does not possess the structure, depth, or concentration found in the top 2001 Napa Cabernets. Nevertheless, it is an elegant offering displaying notes of tobacco leaf, black currants, and spicy oak in a medium-bodied, easy going, uninspiring style. Given the ambitious pricing policy, I'm surprised there is not more to this wine than what meets the eye and palate.

About This Producer

After decades of managing and consulting for the most exclusive wineries in Napa, Jim Barbour began cultivating grapes for his own wine in 1992. In a gravel and loam-soil vineyard just south of St. Helena, he grafted budwood from famed Grace Family Vineyards, and was on his way to producing high caliber Cabernet Sauvignon. With Heidi Peterson Barrett as winemaker, the team has focuses on high quality in the vineyards and cellar. Barbour harvests only one-to-two tons per acre and strives to maintain a well-balanced vine with little to no irrigation during the year. Since their first vintage of 1995 Cabernet Sauvignon, production has steadily increased, but remains well below 1,000 cases.

Wine Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon is perhaps the world's best known red variety, with its full-bodied, intense profile. An offspring of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, it is the primary grape of Bordeaux's Left Bank (Medoc and Graves regions) and the Napa Valley, but can be found growing all over the world. Typical descriptors for Cabernet Sauvignon are cassis, cedar, mint, black pepper, eucalyptus, and pencil lead.
