Barra 2021 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
The cabernet sauvignon fruit for this wine was handpicked from both our 50-acre vineyard site located at our winery in Redwood Valley, CA as well as our home ranch, Redwood Valley Vineyards. After completing primary and secondary fermentation, this wine was gently racked into barrels where it rested for 18 months before final blending. Aged in 30% new French oak, this elegant Cabernet greets you with complex notes of vanilla, black currant, wood spice and anise. On the palate, it is soft and plush, while at the same time delivering a wonderful, lively acidity. There is a mix of dark fruit and a subtle hint of dusty cocoa. Silky chocolate notes and soft, supple tannins round out the lingering finish.
