Tasting Notes
Oaky aromas, dark blackberries, cocoa, and spice. The flavors are bold and rich. Lots of acidity gives it a brightness on the finish. The Merlot adds mid palate and blueberry pie notes. Drink 2019-2027

Winemaker Notes
2017 was a good year for our Barbera. We cropped a little lower than average and the results show in the body of the wine. I feel like this is a varietal that is over-looked. Kind of like the Merlot of Italy. Great body, easy drinking wines that do not always get the recognition they deserve. It is a little bit of a mystery to me how this wine can be big and fruity with a smooth finish yet have a high acidity. I started enjoying wine when I worked for an Italian restaurant in Santa Cruz. It was fun to try all the different Italian varietals, from Dolcetto’s to Barbera’s. This gape became a favorite of mine and I like thinking we can help start its history here in Washington. Thinking we are a small part of history is inspiring.
