In 1972 Jim Barrett, son of a Waterford immigrant, purchased the historic 100 hectare property which lies 3.5 kilometres north of Calistoga, at the base of Mount St. Helena. Under Jim Barrett’s guidance the château’s vineyards were replanted and a modern winery was installed and in 1976 his vision was rewarded by winning the famous ‘Judgement of Paris’ when his Chardonnay beat 4 white Burgundies and five other Californian Chardonnays in a blind tasting that rocked the wine world.

Tasting Notes

Youthful, rich nose with classic Napa Cabernet aromas of currant, black cherry and menthol. Some subtle wood and spice notes add complexity. Dry, broad and structured on the palate with cherry, cassis, liquorice and herbs with ripe tannins and supple texture. Long and flavoursome in the finish.

I bought this wine as a special wine to share with my family for Christmas Dinner. I was not disappointed.My children (all adults) immediately commented on the exceptional quality of the wine. It was a complex wine with a balanced fruitiness acidity and tannins. I would definitely buy it again for a special occasion.
