Violia Wine Cellars Barbera d'Alder 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

Our flagship red, the Barbera d'Alder features stainless steel aged Barbera from the Alder Ridge Vineyard located in the Horse Heaven Hills AVA, WA. Picked to retain the natural acidity and make a wine with bright fruit flavors, we bottle this wine when it is young and with a little trapped CO2 immediately following malo-lactic fermentation. This allows for lower sulfur levels while preserving freshness to enjoy as a youthful red for Summer BBQ and the bounty of Autumn. As Winter approaches, the wine settles down and becomes a nice accompaniment for steaks and roasts and richer dishes. 14.3% alcohol. 124 cases produced
