VINTAGE - 2008
APPELLATION - SONOMA VALLEY, SONOMA COUNTY, NORTH COAST, CALIFORNIA.
Bright red cherry and red plum aromas with floral and cedar notes are enhanced by savory fennel and paprika. The fruit flavors carry through to the palate from start to finish with the savory elements building the mid-palate complexity. The bright acidity and
red peppery spice give length and intensity to the finish.
The grapes for our Barbera come from our historic estate vineyard in the Sonoma Valley. The Barbera block was planted in 1997 and the vines have come into full maturity in recent years, producing the grapes capable of making this distinctive and vibrant wine. The 2008 vintage is made entirely from this vineyard.
