Barnett Vineyards2006 Cabernet Sauvignon
(Spring Mountain District ~ Napa Valley)
This is simply a gorgeous, full-bodied Cab that needs time (if you’ve got it), at least two more years; and it will age for an additional dozen.

What counts in Mr. Goldfarb’s criteria when judging a wine is: how it tastes in the glass; is it well-constructed; its food compatibility; and presence of redeeming regional attributes.
