Barbera is an Italian grape variety that made its way to Amador County during the Gold rush of the 1850's and still thrives here today. The variety's natural acidity and deep color make it a great option for blends, but also a wonderful stand-alone wine.
This red wine is a true expression of a robust, full bodied and firmly tannic wine with deep dark color, giving it a rustic appeal. Aromas of blackberry, blueberry and black pepper along with notes of vanilla from oak aging.
