Tasting Notes

Effusive with notes of cinnamon and macerated strawberries with a touch of baked pie crust and the fragrance of sweet peas. On the palate, the wine blooms with notes of
raspberries and spice, vibrant acidity and a bright juicy finish lengthened by a dusting of light tannins.

Food Pairing Notes

Food-friendly and highly versatile, this wine is terrific with pizza, herbed poultry and game, and roasted root vegetables.

Vineyard Notes

The grapes for the 2017 Barbera come from our Estate Home Ranch in Alexander Valley. Long, warm days aided by the absence of marine influence marks this site. The soils are composed of clay and clay loam with underlying layers of basalt, sandstone and serpentine rock. Vines are challenged by the low nutrient level of the clay and the shallow topsoil, which both force them to produce more concentrated fruit.
