Winemaker’s Notes:

“Barbera is such a delicious wine; we are lucky to have this experiment to reclaim.

My first selection to pair with this wine is cheese, before all else.”

Dane Stark, Owner & Winemaker


Tasting Notes:

The color of this wine is a deeper and more vibrant red due to medium to high acidity.

It opens with earthy fruit, a touch of floral  and medium intensity with a pleasing berry and medium tannic force.

The structure lends itself to aging, and the fruit of the mid palate leads to a lengthy finish. Dense tannins provide for a wonderful food wine and will pair beautifully with richer dishes. The finish mingles floral components and nuts with spice, herbs and roses.
