"A high-quality Cabernet Sauvignon hailing from Lake County.
Clay Shannon's The Barkley offers a firm tannic texture that provides structural integrity
and a solid foundation for the voluptuous fruits.
Black plum, currant, cherry are complemented by notes of violets, nutmeg, clove, cacao and walnut skins.
The finish lingers with a back-breath of a floral potpourri."

Our Thoughts on this wine.....

This Cabernet Sauvignon is a tale of two appellations within Lake County.
Crafted with grapes grown in the High Valley and Red Hills appellations.
Together, these vineyards produce a wine with rich cassis aromas marked by notes of lavender and vanilla that lead to raspberry and cherry flavors elevated with a long tobacco and red currant finish.
Bright fruit, spice, texture, and all of the tannin is a hallmark of the high elevation vineyards of Lake County. The dark fruits, old world characters and dried herbs come from the lower elevations of Lake County.
Although it would be great with a filet, it’s lush and soft enough to enjoy by itself .


"Sustainability isn’t some philosophical concept;
it’s the way we live our lives."

Clay Shannon

Clay Shannon has always been a bit of a maverick. In 1996, he decided to buck convention and set out on his own to establish a progressive, pioneering winery and ranch in Lake County, California.
This wild, challenging terrain captured Shannon’s imagination and inspired his uncompromising commitment to the land itself. “We wanted to grow the best fruit possible,” says Clay,
“but we wanted to do it in a way that made us happy living there.”

Today, Shannon Family of Wines includes over 2,000 acres of mountain property, roughly half of which is under vine.
