Just bottled a week ago Floral and intense on the nose with a complex array of grapefruit, quinine and red fruit aromas. On entry one finds nice acidity supporting bright red fruit that shows a bit of plum and a little watermelon flavor on what is a pretty lightweight mid palate though it shows real cut in a lovely, clear bright, and tense style that has small powdery tannins adding a bit of density to the long, juicy and pure finish. This is tense and exciting barbera. 92pts

A bit funky on the nose filled with aromas of licorice, brownie, a little toasted nuts and meaty notes as well. Big acids on entry flow into lovely, clear and open fruit that is decisive in a rustic way. The flavors recall the slight oxidative flavors of Barbera from another era, though they do show great depth on the palate. This has near perfect acidity that just piques the palate but is well balanced by the richness of fruit,which gains a little medicinal herb and beef jerky complexity with just a faint wash of fruit tannin helping to support the midpalate and through the finish. 90pts

Very sweet wild fruit on the nose that is a bit figgy and fudgy with a strong vegetal top note, and a vivid streak of tar. Broad and expansive in the mouth with a wonderful transparent feel to the pure red fruits. This really floats in the mouth with a nice accent of tannin helping to give it some shape. The finish is long and really driven by that tannin which adds a nice earthy note to the finale 89pts

Winemaker's Notes:

Not yet reviewed; 2008 vintage rated 90 points by Wine Spectator: Coffee and chocolate notes accent the plum and blackberry flavors in this ripe, muscular red. Supple and velvety, with balsamic hints on the finish. Drink now through 2018. 300 cases imported.
