Wine Profile
Ratings
♦ Steve Heimoff, Wine Enthusiast Magazine (94 Points) - An impressive Cabernet, flashy and dramatic in the “cult” style. It’s smooth and velvety, with imposingly rich tannins that frame, pure black currant, crème de cassis, dark chocolate and anise flavors. There’s a lot of oak, too, but it’s in keeping with the wine’s volume. Should develop over the next 15 years, but you can certainly drink it now. ♦ Antonio Galloni, The Wine Advocate (92 Points) - The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Il Barone is a beautifully focused wine graced with expressive dark berries, flowers, spices and mint. It reveals lovely focus and energy from start to finish. The mid-palate sweetness and generosity tapers off a bit on the finish, which is the only thing that keeps the score from going higher. The final blend includes 2% Petite Verdot. Drink 2012-2019.

Vineyard Notes
Il Barone is a blend of the Castello's top high-end Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards from the best growing regions of Napa Valley. The majority of the fruit comes from the Rutherford AVA, a region famed for producing beautifully structured and complex Cabernet Sauvignon.
Food Pairing Notes
Pair with foods as bold as the wine, such as roast game meats, grass-fed steak, or grilled portabello mushrooms with reduced balsamic vinegar glaze
