Wine Recommendation

Barnett Vineyards

2006 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.

The Reviewer

Alan Goldfarb

Alan Goldfarb has been writing about and reviewing wine for 17 years. His reviews have been published in the St. Helena Star, San Jose Mercury, San Francisco Examiner, Decanter, and Wine Enthusiast, among others. Not once has he used a point system, star system, or an iconic symbol to quantify a wine. 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.
