Deep garnet-purple, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Rattlesnake gives up notes of baked blackberries, crème de cassis and blueberry pie with hints of Marmite toast, chocolate box, menthol and cigar box. Full-bodied, the richly fruited palate delivers mouth-filling black berry preserves and savory layers with a compelling backbone of freshness and velvety tannins, finishing on a lingering minty note.Lisa Perrotti-Brown - Wine Advocate 92+
Barnett Vineyards' first harvest was in 1989 and yielded 232 cases of Cabernet. The winery has expanded gradually since then, selecting outstanding vineyard sites for grapes in addition to those grown on the estate. Rattlesnake and Spring Mountain District wines, including Merlot and Cabernet Franc, remain the focus with total estate production varying between 5,000 and 6,000 cases annually. In addition, we produce limited amounts Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Sauvignon Blanc sourced from single vineyards located in desired appellations.
