James Judd & Son Barbera Shandon 2005

Member Review by thewineattic:

James Judd wines are most famous for their stellar Paso Robles cabernet - each year sold out. This was the first time I've tasted their Barbera from their Shandon Vineyards. Very classic. I would save for another 5 years to round the tannins out but all in all very satisfying and right on the money. I love these guys - true acriculturalists and James Jr. believe it or not is a professional comedian. If you see any James Judd wines, know that you are getting real quality along with the value of their pricing. Another winner!

90 pts - Nose handily carries spiced blackberries, oak. Strong tannins, medium-bodied. Strong oak and grape stems on palate. Decant more than 1 hour, hold until 2011. Pair with fried green tomatoes.
