Product Description

2013 BARBOUR CABERNET SAUVIGNON DISPLAYS INTENSE AND CONCENTRATED AROMAS RESULTING FROM AN OUTSTANDING VINTAGE FOR THIS DRY-FARMED AND METICULOUSLY MAINTAINED VINEYARD. BLUE AND PURPLE-TONED FRUITS DOMINATE THE NOSE WITH JUST A TOUCH OF SWEET SAGE AND DARK TOBACCO PROVIDING THE FOUNDATION FOR MORE LIFTED NOTES.

HARVESTED BY HAND ON SEPTEMBER 16 AND 20, 2013, THIS WINE HAILS FROM JIM BARBOURíS ESTATE VINEYARD ON THE WESTERN BENCHLANDS OF ST. HELENA. CLUSTER SELECTION BOTH IN THE VINEYARD AND WINERY WAS EXACTING. THE FRUIT WAS DESTEMMED AND SORTED, THEN FERMENTED ON ITS SKINS FOR APPROXIMATELY THREE WEEKS PRIOR TO GENTLY PRESSING. AGED IN FRENCH OAK BARRELS FOR 22 MONTHS, THE WINE SHOWS THE BODY, BREADTH OF PALATE, AND CLARITY OF FRUIT EXPRESSION AT FINISH TO ENSURE AGE-WORTHINESS, YET AN ELEGANT, CONGENIAL TANNIN STRUCTURE TO ENJOY AT RELEASE.
