  • Boggy Creek Vineyards Barbera King Valley 2005


    A great wine. The winery says "The wine presents with rich herbal, cherry and jammy characters, but is a surprise to many on the palate due to its unique structure." Sounds like the ideal description of a Barbera wine to me. When you taste the wine you will see that they are right,. Read More
