An ancient varietal recast in a new world fruit forward style, our California Barbera embodies the more playful side of the grape. Deep red fruit with notes of cherry, strawberry, and anise on the nose turns into juicy cherry with bright red fruit flavors and hints of cracked pepper and dried tobacco leaf. Its medium body and subtle tannins leave a long finish of oak, dried plums, and vanilla that pair beautifully with rich dark meats, root vegetables, mushrooms, herbaceous blue cheese, and gorgonzola.
