Wine Review: This dark red colored Barbera from Napa is tasty. It opens with a musty old wood and red beet like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, smooth and easy to drink. The flavor profile is a gentle blueberry and red cherry blend with notes of faint cola and vanilla oak. The finish is dry and its mild acidity and faint tannins stick around for a bit. While this wine is not over complex, it is very appealing. It will be a crowd pleaser and would pair nicely with your favorite burger. Enjoy – Ken
Winemaker Notes: A fine example of how flavorful a dry red wine made in the Italian style can be. This single vineyard Barbera has a medium body and lively acidity, with hints of dried herbs, black pepper and blackberries. This Barbera makes a wonderful table wine complimentary to Italian fare.
