This well-structured wine displays dark purplish-garnet hues with concentrated blackberry, boysenberry and plum flavors wrapped in tar and toasty oak flavors and aromas. This Barbera is balanced by a firm acidity and medium firm tannins that partially derived from the new French Burgundy barrels. The finish is rich, complex and harmonious. This wine is enjoyable now or will you been rewarded with cellaring over the next decade.

Once known as a peasant wine, this grape has grown to one of the most widely planted varietals in the Piemonte region of northwestern Italy. Today, Barbera is one of the most exalted grapes of this rugged mountain region. It arrived with Italian immigrants in California in 19th century and adapted well to the coastal volcanic soils. When produced in low yields and treated to barrel ageing it can make extremely exciting wines. This represents our 25th vintage of Barbera.
