Barbera is a varietal that's hearty enough to stand up to big and bold flavors, but also smooth enough to sip on it's own. A blend of fresh fruits, subtle spices, and beautiful herbs, our 2018 Barbera is a stunning example of the Italian varietal. Grown in Mendocino, these grapes had the perfect balance of warm days, cool nights, and beautiful coastal breezes - perfect for developing these rich aromas and bold flavors. The cherries and berries on the palate are complemented by notes of black pepper, oregano, and even a hint of lavendar. The subtle balance of flavors are ideal for pairing with savory dishes highlighted by mushroom, truffle, and gamey proteins. If you're craving something sweet, our 2018 Barbera is perfect with dark chocolate, dried cherries, and subtle baking spices.
