What an interesting wine! Nose is full of herbal aromas without being herbaceous! Rosemary and bayleaf prickle the nose followed by blackberry (not crackberry!). The mid-palate fills with broad sweet dark fruit. The tannins get a little darker and more bitter on the finish with a nice mild acid at the end

Winemaker's Notes:

Technical Data Varietal: Barbera Vintage: 2006 Estate Grapes:100% Year Planted: 1995 Soil: Valley Floor Gravel Loam Alcohol By Volume: 14.4% Oak: American & Franch Release Date: 12/01/07 Total Cases: 1011 CA Retail: $28.00 Aging Potential 10 years from vintage The Wine An intensely fruity, dark and spicy wine, Barbera has been for Preston Vineyards a serendipitous discovery and adventure in flavor. The concentrated aromas of ripe raspberry and cherries are highlighted by notes of dark chocolate and subtle oak, providing a wine satisfying in its richness, surprising in its earthiness, and exciting in its food affinities. The Vines Barbera ,which first found its noble lineage in the full-flavored wines of Italy�s Piedmont region, now has happily adapted to our lighter alluvial soils along Dry Creek. Historically, Barbera had not been widely planted here, but we believe it to be an apt expression of Dry Creek�s Italian farming heritage�it�s serious exciting, sophisticated and sensuous all at once. It belongs here. Thoughts For Food With aromas of leather and earth, Barbera really shines with a meal of wild mushrooms. Saut� with garlic and herbs, reduce the juices with a bit of the same wine, serve with a rough and crusty loaf.
