2008 Barlow Cabernet Sauvignon
California: Napa Valley
Raise the Barr
We absolutely love Barlow’s wines and today’s fantastic, 2008 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a wonderful follow-up to our previous offerings from this gem of a producer.
Dark fruit and earthy, savory characteristics combine to give the wine a lovely, complex overall composition. Layer upon layer of dark fruit seems to avail itself as the wine breathes, revealing deeper, more authentic flavors.
Pair with beef ribs or your favorite grilled steak. Highly recommended, drink this elegant, delicious wine now… or hold this age-worthy wonder for up to 10 more years.
Deep ruby red hues, with concentrated color, from core to edge. When swirled, tall, chubby legs take a long time to emerge before running slowly down the glass.
Bold black cherry, blackberry and vanilla spiced Bing cherry lead the way. Fresh cedar bark, dried American Beauty red rose petals, cassis, dried cranberry, sweet pipe tobacco and subtle, sweet brown spice.
Softly spiced black cherry, blackberry and black plum fuse with dark, wild strawberry, dried brown tobacco leaf, dried fall leaves, savory herbs, cigar box, dried cranberry and a hint of cracked black pepper.
Very long, with dark fruit gradually yielding to earthy, savory flavors of dried leaves, dried flowers, subtle tobacco and spice.
