Barnett Vineyards 2015 Rattlesnake Cabernet Sauvignon

The core and rim of the wine is dark purple. Layers of blackberry, tobacco and cedar are immediately apparent, as well as mocha, black licorice and wet volcanic rock. The palate is silky and viscous as chalky tannins begin to emerge. More dark fruit, crushed violets and a full spectrum of spices appear on the palate as the mountain acidity begins to balance the tannins out. The long cocoa finish adds a beautiful element to this young wine. Cellaring for two decades would allow for amazing bottle bouquet development to complement the power of this classic wine (2037-2040).
