Barkan Tempranillo Samson Reserve 2005

Member Review by girjums:

Congratulations to the wine producers at Barkan that decided to make this wine their centerpiece instead of using it as a blend! It is so fantastic on its own. The wine starts with a spice, and moves immediately into a raspberry, cherry and chocolate blend that is perfectly balanced. The small Petit Verdot finish, with great oak and coconut touch makes this wine linger a drop longer on the tongue than expected. It's a GREAT under $25 bottle. Perfectly paired with a light, gamey meat or chicken, or a heavy pasta dish.

A Vineyard was to Solomon the King, and as the love in the Song of Songs, our love started in a vineyard. Our love is a devotion to wine, to premium wines from the finest grapes we can grow, that our vineyard can give. To fulfill our love, we invest all our effort and soul from the beginning, from choosing the site for the vineyard, planning its rows, the choice of vines, the direction the light will fall. We plant with love, train the young vines and bring them to their first harvest: pruning, trellising, watching for signs of illness, watering and waiting. We harvest, we crush the fruit, ferment the wine, press it, age it, blend it and bring it to the bottle with all the care and devotion that we have, in order that the bottle you open will be the best we can give.
