Barnett Vineyards Sangiacomo Vineyard Chardonnay 2019 750ML

Beautiful bright gold color with powerful aromatics. Passionfruit and kiwi jump from the glass which is matched by spiciness. There are layers of honeysuckle and jasmine. Round and rich this is a very luscious wine. The fruit moves to more apricot and pear on the palate while pretty jasmine persists. This is a lush rich wine that can be enjoyed in its youth or will develop nicely over the next 6-7 years (2026 - 2027). 

93pts - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate "Opens with a gorgeous nose of spice cake, candied ginger, lemon butter and marzipan over a core of apricots, Bosc pears and apple pie. Medium-bodied, the palate bursts with intense citrus and apple flavors plus loads of spicy accents with a racy backbone and satiny texture finishing long with beautiful savoriness."

Fiona and Hal Barnett purchased a 40-acre property located atop Spring Mountain in 1983. After extensive work the first Cabernet Sauvignon vines were planted the following year. Since the very beginning, the intent was to produce small amounts of hand crafted wines that would showcase the unique characteristics found in grapes cultivated on such challenging, high elevation terrain. Over the next five years the vines developed and the estate was established.

Barnett Vineyard's first harvest was in 1989 and yielded 232 cases of "Spring Mountain Cabernet". The winery has expanded gradually since then, selecting outstanding vineyard sites for grapes in addition to those grown on the estate, leading to a current total production of approximately 8,000 cases. Rattlesnake and Spring Mountain District wines remain the focus with the total estate production varying between 5,000 and 6,000 cases annually. In addition, limited amounts of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Sauvignon Blanc are sourced from coveted single vineyards located in astounding appellations and produced.
