Meeker Red Blend Sonoma County Barberian 2002
There is only one adjective for this Meeker creation and that is BIG! Big aromas, big flavors, big fruit, big structure, big persistence! The huge, booming nose of blackberries and carmelized brown sugar is followed by intense flavors of blueberry cream, cherry, black pepper and vanilla...all wrapped in a big bear hug of sweet French oak. Barbarian will pair perfectly with a thick hunk of beef crusty with a spicy rub, a side of juicy portabella mushrooms, and a willing wench or varlet. When you taste the wine, it's subtly seductive at first, but then explodes in blackberries and plums. The tannins are mellow but this Zin from 120 year old vines sure knows how to strut its stuff! Cheers and enjoy!
This big red from Meeker is one of my absolute favorites. Agent Sparkle loves it even more than I do. If you like intense and fruity reds, this is the wine for you. With a nose of blueberry, popcorn and raspberry and buttered-brown sugar on the mid-pallet, this is a ready to drink brute of a wine that pairs great with a grilled steak or a meat lasagna!
