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 nose of sweet blackcurrant jam and black cherry with floral and cedar undertones. Dry, with high acid and grippy tannins. Pronounced and dense flavours of sweet spiced fruit with chocolate and wood notes. Rich, ripe and full flavoured this wine is incredibly complex and a quintessential top-end Californian Cabernet.
