Jacuzzi Barbera 2014

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Jammy and spicy on the nose with blackberry and cinnamon aromas and a little vanilla Pop Tart thing going on. Rich on entry and nicely fruited in the mouth, the flavors show plenty of ripeness but the texture is light and fresh with some fine-grained tannins adding a nice edge to the fruit. This is bold and juicy with good length to the fresh, fruity finish. This really tastes much fresher and lighter than the nose might lead you to believe. A great, long juicy plum skin finish. 87pts

I bought this a couple of years ago, when I was considering Jacuzzi as the venue for my wedding. I ended up marrying elsewhere, but knew this 2006 was at the peak of its drinkability (now Aug 2010), so I cracked it open to pair with a prosciutto penne-tomato salad. I am loving it! Strong jammy/berry and what I thought was "smoke" on the nose (tasting notes say raspberry and tobacco). I've had it stored in a refrigerated wine storage unit until today, and I did a mini-decant with the soiree aerator. It's workin' for me as I type!

Frankly, kind of boring. The fruit was overripe, and there was a bad fake flavor in there that I couldn't quite identify. Not horribly made, just not interesting in any way whatsoever.
