Palmina Barbera Santa Ynez Valley 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Deep ruby. Aromas of blackberries, black currant and toast with jam. These dark berry notes are mirrored on the palate, and joined by interesting nuances of blood orange, a hint of dried cherry and spicy components -- Chinese Five Spice, white pepper and a suggestion of violets. Young mission figs, black cherries and a bit of black strap molasses are balanced by firm and bright acidity. Crisp acidity and a pleasing finish replete with soft mocha-like tannins. Not yet reviewed; 2009 vintage rated 88 points by International Wine Cellar.

After Paula succumbed to breast cancer, Steve found that her given name on her Italian birth certificate was Palmina, and the winery was thus fittingly named. Read less
