Lot 17 Sierra Foothills Barbera 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Notes: Big purple fruits, black cherry, and violet aromas. Bright red fruits hit you up front with Bing cherries and red raspberries. The mid-palate offers hints of plum sauce, cinnamon, and coffee grinds that lead to a black pepper, dusty spice finish. This big-yet-elegant wine embodies great acidity, making it a perfect food-pairing wine. Lasagna lovers will howl! Cameron Confidential: In my opinion, they should be grafting and planting Barbera like crazy up there because this stuff grows so well in the Sierra Foothills. Only a couple hundred cases of this wine were produced, and therefore it will be exclusive to online purchases. The main component is high-altitude (2,500 ft), single-vineyard juice selling for $40 a bottle under another "Grand Reserve" label that routinely scores 92s and 93s. This wine has spent 14 months in new French oak.
