Barbera 2017

Barbera 2017

The rain pelted the hills as the bare vines rocked back and forth with the strong winds. As a particularly strong gust came along one of the old oak trees swayed and shifted dramatically.  Suddenly a huge branch broke off and fell onto the road, giving the driver of the small green tractor just enough time to slam on the brakes and avoid being crushed. Shaking his head, he said, “OK, just please not the vines!”

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Bright and fresh on the nose, ripe raspberry swirls through a complex marriage of toast, weathered leather, and a touch of redwood bark. On the palate, that same bright raspberry softens into a blackberry pie and plum flavor highlighted by racy acidity. The tannins are wonderfully integrated and smooth, while a little firm now.
Winemaker Notes
Nurtured from cuttings that can trace their heritage all the way back to those rainy Piedmontese hills, this Barbera continues a long tradition of excellence for this grape in Temecula Valley. Barbera is always one of our most popular wines and this one may surpass all previous versions.
Food Pairing Notes
The only thing that can enhance it is a group of close friends and a heaping helping of cioppino.
