Hart Barbera Temecula Valley 2009

Member Review by EMark:

Quite rich color, the color is dark, but a fair amount of light still passes through. Somewhat woody, somewhat fungal nose. Very fruity on the tip of the tongue. Slight tannin (but you know how I love tannin) Medium bodied. Good acid. Something bitter on the very back of the palate. It took three sips for me to really like this. The fruit at the front at first seemed excessive, but other components are not moving in. US$25.00 at the winery in May.

Joe and Nancy Hart of Hart Winery are an inspiration to those who have ever dreamed of owning and operating a winery. In 1970, they discover the Temecula Valley and after much research deemed Temecula Wine Country to be ideal. In 1974 the Hart family planted its first grapevines in the beautiful Temecula Valley. On weekends, Nancy, Joe and their three sons planted the vineyard, which is comprised of Syrah, Viognier, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc. In 1980 they built the winery on a corner of their 10-acre vineyard property. Later that same year, the first wines bearing the Hart label were produced, bottled and sold. Today, in keeping with the philosophy that small-scale winemaking is an art form engaged in by a winemaker with a passion for wine, Joe Hart, along with his son, Jim, produce about 5000 cases of premium wine annually. The Hart family places an emphasis on matching grape varieties with terroir. Numerous Gold Medals and Best of Class Awards throughout the years attest to recognition by industry peers as well as by the public to the excellence of Hart Winery wines. Read less
