The vineyard was originally planted in 1862 with mission grapes then planted over to Zinfandel and mixed blacks in about 1888 with additional acreage planted in 1996 and 1998. 33% new wood. Reticent on the nose with touches of pencil lead, flowers and Ivy adding detail to the bright boysenberry and plum fruit with a distinct woodsy underlay. Assertive acids keep this fresh though the fruit is lush and broad and the tension with the crisp tannins gives this a lovely texture. This is a touch short at this point but it has superb clarity. 91pts

76% Zinfandel, 24% Petite SirahThe 2007 Barricia is likely the most perfumed wine of the Single Vineyard Designates, eliciting ethereal qualities on the nose. While it is very dark ruby, it will strike lovers of claret-style wines with its Cabernet-like structure and form. Possessing a wow of spice and having characters of cherry pie and fresh berry preserves.

Tasting Notes:

The 2007 Barricia is likely the most perfumed wine of the Single Vineyard Designates, eliciting ethereal qualities on the nose. While it is very dark ruby, it will strike lovers of claret-style wines with its Cabernet-like structure and form. Possessing a wow of spice and having characters of cherry pie and fresh berry preserves, this wine will bring out the best flavors of your typical California cuisine—grilled chicken, smoked barbeque, and other fresh and organic foods. It has a long, firm finish that includes hints of cracked pepper. – Joel Peterson
