Food Pairings for Bray Vineyards Barbera California Shenandoah Valley Rosato
The is a small production winery in the Shenandoah Valley, Sierra Foothills area in Northern California. This Barbera Rosato is a 3-time gold medal winner. Nice and dry with flavors of cranberry and raspberry and clean finish. Drink by itself or with grilled salmon.
I am reviewing a bottle fo the source wine for the award winning rose - the 2007 Barbera from Bray. I adore the legendary SF Chronicle Rose winner that is made from the Barbera grape. This wine keeps winning awards because it is good and unique. But don't expect too much and you won't be let down. Barbera is inherently a lighter red so it is hard to give it a 5. Most of us only try the Italian Barbera d'Alba, but this Barbera is just as accessible but uniquely Californian. This terrior is UNIQUE and it works. It turns this lighter, non-tannic grape into an aromatic expression of a bouquet of flowers, and subtle cranberry smells. The palette delivers the the cranberry and rasberry and lemon zest on the finish. It is understandable why the makers would taste this and say, let's do a rose. What is remarkable is that this Barbera stands on it's own. SNOOTH - please break this varietal out in your system!
