Barbera 2012 SYV
Santa Ynez Valley
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.
