Scott Harvey Wines J&s Reserve Barbera 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

A blend of the Mamby and Harvey Vineyards of the Shenandoah Valley of Amador County, California. Amador county is extremely well suited to Barbera. Barbera both buds out earlier and ripens later than Zinfandel producing grapes at a lower pH and full bright varietal fruit. Barbera will eventually become known as the best variety for Amador County.

This Barbera was all that and more. The nose had strong notes of vanilla, while the mouthfeel is light, yet rich. Slight hints of woody flavors and tart cherries also make an appearence in this well rounded and lively Barbera. Very drinkable no matter the occasion, although I would probably drink this wine on its own, rather than with a meal.

Pretty vanilla and nutmeg notes are surrounded by the sweet smell of cherry pie. On the palate this wine is juicy and well rounded. Full mouth of cherry with hints of cedar and spice on this finish. Ripping acidity says that this wine is delicious on it's own, but would also pair well with many foods.

Phenomenal wine! There are complex aromas of licorice, cherry pie and vanilla that dazzle my nostrils as I lean in for sip #1. This wine has a rich and smooth mouthfeel, half and half, not 2%. Tart cherry tones dominate the palette, with a fantastically long and lingering finish of vanilla, spice and fruit. I love this wine, and while it is a bit of an investment, you can easily lay down a few bottles for a special occasion while not being too greedy about sharing it with friends.



Tasting Notes:

Fruit forward, rich full flavors expressing both the varietal and the Amador Terroir. This complex wine has notes of cherries, tobacco and blackberry with a bright center finishing with vanilla and spice.

A blend of the Mamby and Harvey Vineyards of the Shenandoah Valley of Amador County, California. Amador county is extremely well suited to Barbera. Barbera both buds out earlier and ripens later than Zinfandel producing grapes at a lower pH and full bright varietal fruit.
