Name: Barnard Griffin Cabernet Sauvignon
Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon
Winery: Barnard Griffin Winery
Region: USA > Oregon; Washington > Columbia Valley
Winecast’s Rating: 4/5
Winecast’s Review: Rusty garnet in color getting a little tawny at the rim. Ripe black current, licorice, menthol and pencil lead aromas. Rich and mouth-filling blackberry and current fruit with some cracked pepper and chocolate finishing with dusty, but still noticeable, tannins and good acidity. This must have been a tannic monster at release but has now settled down and is drinking quite well. Given itâ€™s maturity and price point, I think this is a nice value in Cabernet that will hold for another year before decline.
