2019 Barrel EXP
91 points, Wine Advocate
90 points, James Suckling
Our 2019 Barrel EXP displays lush aromas of vanilla bean, mulberry, anise, and cocoa nibs. The use of 100% new oak imprints a sweet and spicy character and well-integrated, firm tannins. The palate is juicy and layered with supporting flavors of ripe black cherry, espresso, and cedar cigar box followed by a long and even finish.
Peju winemaker Sara Fowlers yearly barrel experiment is well known among her fellow winemakers in Napa Valley. Sara works with a variety of different barrel toasting styles and coopers, then shares this learning tool with her peers by offering a comparative tasting to determine the flavors and textures that come om each unique oak treatment. This wine is not only a unique expression of the Cabernet Sauvignon grape, it is also an ode to the spirit of the Napa Valley.
