WA 98 Pts - The 2013 Rattlesnake is nearly black in color. The complex nose is very serious in its youth, but after a bit of air the layers of complexity emerge. Blackcurrant puree and fresh blackberries are matched with dark chocolate, crushed violets and coffee grounds. Beautiful underlying aromas of spring rain and volcanic earth begin to emerge. Silky at the beginning the tannins begin to emerge and show the wines youth. Blueberry pie and more dark chocolate are prominent on the palate. The sizeable tannins are in a chalky complex form that are matched by the acidity but scream for cellaring.

WA 98 Pts - Winemakers Notes - The 2013 Rattlesnake is nearly black in color. The complex nose is very serious in its youth, but after a bit of air the layers of complexity emerge. Blackcurrant puree and fresh blackberries are matched with dark chocolate, crushed violets and coffee grounds. Beautiful underlying aromas of spring rain and volcanic earth begin to emerge. Silky at the beginning the tannins begin to emerge and show the wines youth. Blueberry pie and more dark chocolate are prominent on the palate. The sizeable tannins are in a chalky complex form that are matched by the acidity but scream for cellaring. This beautiful and substantial wine will age amazingly over the next 18-20 years (2033-2035). 14.6% ABV.

According to Robert ParkerThe opaque blue/purple color jumps from the glass of the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Rattlesnake, a 100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in 90% new French oak. A nose of white flowers, blueberries, blackberries, cassis should make this one of the most profound Rattlesnake Cabernet Sauvignons made yet at Barnett Vineyards. Gorgeous purity, fabulous balance, a full-bodied mouthfeel and multi-dimensional texture result in a compelling Cabernet Sauvignon to drink over the next 25 years.
