Barbera, 2015, Alisos Canyon
Alisos Canyon Vineyard, Santa Barbara County
Our 2015 Barbera was harvested on September 15, 2015 from the south facing exposed block at the top of the hill of Alisos Canyon Vineyard. This sandy site yields wines with great concentration and depth. The wine was sorted then fermented in open top bins. 2015 was an extremely low yielding vintage further intensifying the flavor profile and aromatics. After pressing, this wine was aged in 50% new French oak for 15 months. Aromatically, our Barbera is driven with toasty aromas wrapped up with black and red fruit. The flavor profile is dominated by black fruit, caramel, with a luscious mouthfeel and is lightly structured. Pair our 2015 with hearty Italian dishes or BBQ pork dishes.
