Wine Enthusiast

2007 Rattlesnake Hill Estate Cabernet Sauvignon receives a 95 point Score in June 2010 Issue of Wine Enthusiast

A tremendous wine that easily merits being Barnett’s most expensive release. Shows the ripe blackberry and black currant flavors and new oak that are so easily achieved, with yet near perfect tannins and a dryness unusual in a Cabernet this fruity. The combination of opposites makes this mountain wine noteworthy, as well as ageable. Now–2017.  — S.H.  (6/1/2010)  — 95

2007 Cyrus Ryan Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) receives a 93 point Score in June 2010 Issue of Wine Enthusiast

Disconnected in its youth, with separate oak and fruit elements that need time to find each other and marry. The oak shows up as caramel and butterscotch, while the fruit stands aloof, in blackberry and black currant superiority. Seems to have the inherent balance for aging. Try after 2013.  — S.H.  (6/1/2010)  — 93

2007 Savoy Vineyard Chardonnay receives a 93 point Score in August 2009 Issue of Wine Enthusiast

The vineyard is the source of fantastic Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays for several wineries, and Barnett scores big points with this lush, rich but balanced wine. It’s tremendous in pineapple, pear, green apple and oaky vanilla flavors, but beautifully balanced with firm acidity. Represents an impressive step forward for this bottling.  — S.H.  (8/1/2009)  — 93

2006 Tina Marie Vineyard Pinot Noir (Russian River Valley) receives a 92 point Score in July 2008 Issue of Wine Enthusiast

The vineyard is in Green Valley, the coolest part of the valley and one of the best for Pinot Noir. It’s a classic, with crisp acidity framing laser-pure cherry, Dr. Pepper, date and spice flavors that are elaborated with rich new smoky oak. A beauty.  — S.H.  (7/1/2008)  — 92
