Kunde Barbera Block 3bb04 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

"If you read enough back labels of wine, you've come across a few that tell you they are wonderful to drink now but will also age nicely. You can't have it both ways, right? But the 2007 Kunde Barbera truly serves both desires. This wine is so enticing now in its youth with bright cherry aromas and flavors framed by toasty oak. Yet it has refreshing acidity and depth to the flavors that bode well for aging over the next 5 - 7 years. We think you're best off buying enough to enjoy a few bottles now with grilled sausages and veggies, and aging a few more to try later with pasta and a rich marinara sauce. You really can have it all!"
