SKU: 18 Barbera Walker

Barbera's roots date back to the 13th century in Italy's Piemonte region. Italian immigrants brought the grape with them when they arrived in the U.S. in the 19th and 20th centuries. Barbera shows better in cooler climates producing wines that are both approachable in their youth, yet can also age well in the cellar.


Tasting Notes
Always a deeply hued wine, the 2018 Barbera Walker struts a deep crimson color with an exuberant looking amethyst edge. The texture on the palate is lively, with dancing acidity beautifully married with very soft cocoa-like tannins that deliver flavors of strawberry and red cherries beautifully balanced with cool-climate minerality and herbs and spices. The wine is enjoyable and ready to drink now, but will easily age well over the next 7 to 10 years.


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.
