Holiday Gift Guide 2019: The Best Napa Valley Cabernets For Oenophiles

2017 Barnett Vineyards ‘Rattlesnake’ Cabernet Sauvignon Spring Mountain District ($190): This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon is crafted of small lots of vineyards grown Rattlesnake Hill, a small rocky knoll on the estate. Due to record breaking heat during the summer months, this represents one of the biggest Rattlesnake Cabernets produced by Barnett Vineyards. Bold aromas of black fruit, baking spice, cassis, graphite, ground espresso, dusty cocoa, and dried tobacco leap from the glass. Ripe, grippy tannins give way to a crush velvet mouth-feel. A perfect wine for the collector with patience to age.
