BevX- 5/5 Stars-This wonderful Cabernet blend spends 21 months in French oak while never expressing a heavy presence of oak. Fewer than 400 cases were made from this ideal Napa Valley vintage. This wine is a classic and will do well if cellared for a decade but don’t wait too long as the vibrant fruit notes are not to be missed. 95 points out of 100.
90 Points-James Suckling

Wine Advocate 90 points~Barlow’s 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Barrouge flows from the glass with notable silkiness and depth. Raspberry jam, super-ripe red fruit, sweet spices and tobacco all meld together in this supple, engaging wine. The best qualities of the 2009 vintage come through in spades. The 2009 is 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, 8% Petite Verdot and 4% Cabernet Franc. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2017
3 STARS BEVX.COM~Deep, dense scarlet to burgundy color. The nose offers scents of concentrated red and black berries with accents of mineral, brown baking spices, oak, and earth. The palate echoes the nose as it delivers waves of rich, ripe fruit with complimenting flavors of mineral, black pepper, and brown spices. Heat emerges on the finish and wood tannins rise as well. Dense and chewy stewed fruit notes trail on the long finish.
