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

2009 Barrouge Vintage Notes
The 2008 Barrouge is a blend of
78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc and 6% Petite Verdot from our Estate Vineyards. It has a ruby garnet
color with aromas highlighted by hints of French vanilla that are followed by engaging blue berries and black currants. The palate is soft and concentrated, filled with luscious
cherry and blackberry jam. While the tannins are moderate, the supple texture of the Merlot highlights the fruit of the Cabernet
Sauvignon, thus providing a lengthy finish. This wine truly captures the essence of Barlow Vineyards.

2008 Barrouge Vintage Notes
The 2007 Barrouge is composed
of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot and 5% Cabernet Franc. The 2007 finishes
with soft elegant tannins and touches of roasted almonds that come from the 22 months in French oak. A softer wine,
it reveals chocolate, black cherries, and black currants, a lush texture, elegance with substance, and a nicely textured finish.
It should drink well for 7-10 years.

2007 Barrouge Vintage Notes
The 2006 Barrouge (80% Cabernet Sauvignon,
10% Merlot, 5% Petite Verdot and 5% Cabernet Franc) offers up notes of smoked herbs, damp earth, tar, sweet cherries, and
plums. Medium-bodied and elegant with some of the vintage’s tell-tale tannins, it offers good flesh as well as an alluring
appeal. Drink it over the next 7-8 years.
