Very interesting California Barbera, This one runs more on the soother feel but not as tannic. Blackberry flavors greet you with this wine also with an earth smell that reminded me of a Cabernet Franc.
Bright Cellars group of wines. 20 far 2 for 2 ($23.00 price point)
This deep colored wine is full of jammy aromas of blackberry and black cherry. On the palate, blackcurrant, raspberry jam, and cedar layer over a lush, full body and a slightly peppery finish. Some oak treatment was used during fermentation, and the finished wine was matured for an additional four months in a combination of American and French oak.
