♦ A wax sealed bottle is a beautiful addition to your wine rack, but can be intimidating when it comes time to open it. This is easier than you may think! Simply plunge your corkscrew through the wax, as if it were not even there. Lift the cork slightly and wipe any wax crumbles from the opening. Pull the cork the rest of the way out and enjoy!

Tasting Notes
A elegant old world style wine. Floral and savory notes develop nicely in the bouquet, plum and sweet dark cherries, cedar and earthy undertones show brightly with a strong tanin backbone, which will soften with age. A long, beautifully delineated finish laced with bright floral notes completes it. Infinitely food friendly. Capable of and will benefit from long-term aging.
Ratings
♦ Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media (91 Points) - "The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Il Barone is one of the leaner, more compact wines in the range. With time in the glass, the wine opens up nicely, leading to a long, beautifully delineated finish laced with bright floral notes. The 2011 is sculpted and chiseled throughout. If opened within the next few years, the 2011 needs a good bit of air."
Winemaker Notes
Il Barone is a very flavorful, elegant and structured red wine in the style of high-quality, very limited-production, fine Cabernet Sauvignon wines from the Napa Valley. Excellent long-term ageing potential.
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.
