Barbera, 2012, Santa Ynez Valley
Estelle Vineyard, Santa Ynez Valley
This is from the Estelle Vineyard that we have used since 2009 and started our great tradition with this varietal. This wine shows explosive aromas of raspberry compote, vanilla extract, leather, liquid smoke and oak spice. Flavors continue with raspberry cobbler, blueberries, herbs and light sweet oak. What makes this wine great is its concentration and bright acidity that will allow it to age for 5+ years.
