SKU: 12 Barbera SYV

The 2012 Barbera SBC is sourced primarily from Walker vineyard (85%) and Honea vineyard (15%).

This vintage is unlike any previous vintages in that it is not fruit driven. Instead, the wine is very reminscent of old world Barbera's from Piemonte in both its flavor profile, aromas and texture. The 2012 vintage overall produced leaner wines with sharper tannins. Yet, Barbera has no innate tannin, thereby producing a wine with less fruit forward flavors and earthier textures.


Tasting Notes
The 2012 is a departure from past, fruitier vintages and much more old world in style. Aromas of wet pebbles, blonde tobacco leaves, orange peel, and subtle hints of cranberries on the nose. Tons of complexity on the palate with delicious flavors of cranberry, raspberry, spice and a subtle saltiness that leaves you craving meat to pair. The wine continues to evolve rapidly in the glass.


Food Pairing Notes
Because the grape has no innate tannins, it pairs well with a wide variety of meals including tomato based dishes, sausage, grilled meaty fish, and marbled meats from the grill.
