At Barbed Wire, we like to think of ourselves as craftsmen—building wines from the ground up. We believe that to make great wine, you’ve got to get your hands dirty. You’ve got to go out into the vineyards and learn what makes each region special. Take pride in your craft. By focusing on quality not quantity, we’re able to make tremendously expressive wines—wines that are true to their roots—and to ours.
For the North Coast Cabernet Sauvignon our Winemaker Brian Babcock sourced fruit from famed Alexander Valley and Lake County’s Red Hills vineyards. For the North Coast Red Blend Brian blended Cabernet Sauvignon from Alexander Valley including famed Geyserville Vineyard blocks with Merlot from Napa Valley’s benchland vineyards.
Once each blend is composed, grapes are gently cold-soaked during fermentation to give the blend a smooth, silky texture, then aged in large oak barrels for added body and flavor.
At Barbed Wire, we take pride in our craft by focusing on quality not quantity. This allows us to make tremendously expressive wines—wines that are true to their roots—and to ours – Enjoy.
