2021 Barra Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon – A Formidable Wine From Mendocino -California Wines & Wineries
"Randy Meyer, the winemaker crafted an elegant wine! First on the eyes a deep royal purple with glistening hues around the rim. Medium to medium-heavy viscosity. On the nose this was no ordinary “milk toast or weak cousin” Cabernet Sauvignon from Mendocino, but immediately intense aromas of cherries and blackberry wafted into the senses. On the palate cocoa and vanilla coffee along with blackberry swirled lively in the mouth with a secondary offering of anise. On the finish, most notably it was smooth and silky, yet notable tannins providing a Cabernet Sauvignon that was “Napa worthy”.
I don’t remember having tasted any Cabernet Sauvignon that compares to this bottle of immense flavor at this price point. One of my notes while tasting it was it hit my “Golden Triangle” of balance between fruit, oak and tannins. The end result being a wine with a smooth, silky and delicious finish."
