Tasting Notes

Lively on the nose, aromas of fresh violet petals and baking spices give way to a mouthwatering palate of ripe blackberry, raspberry, crème brulee crust, and toffee brittle. Vibrant acidity and a bright, juicy finish are 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 2018 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.
