Food Pairings for Barrel Oak Winery Norton Fauquier County
The first thing you notice is its color. A very dark ruby color that turns translucent (you can see light through it) when the light hits it just right. Very reminiscent of the gem of the same name. It’s simply beautiful. The nose is one of cherries with an earthy undertone of moss and leaves. Upon first taste, one is hit with the taste of big fruity cherries and a nice little bit of acidity to offset the fruitiness. there are hints of roasted corn, moss and hazelnut on the nice long finish. It is a medium to heavy bodied wine, something that will stand up well to any strongly flavored dish you would want to pair it with. It has very soft tannins which make this an enjoyable wine to drink now. Priced at $25 this is well worth buying two and sticking one away for a bit.
