Wine Advocate #234 cover 2015 Barnett Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon RattlesnakeĀ  | 91+ points

The deep garnet-purple colored 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Rattlesnake offers up a nose of mocha, cedar, earth and spice cake over a core of cassis, Chinese five spice and hoisin. Medium to full-bodied and with very firm and grippy tannins, a decent expression and chewy finish.

2015 Barnett Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Spring Mountain District | 90 points

Blended of 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc, the deep garnet-purple colored 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Spring Mountain District opens with a cassis, plums and black cherries nose with cedar, dried roses and black soil hints plus a touch of charcuterie. There are plenty of baked berries and earthy layers in the full-bodied mouth, with a chewy backbone and savory finish.
