Golden Grove Barbera 2014
Winemaker Ray Costanzo calls Barbera his baby and he has the formula right. Five percentage Durif is used which adds to the vibrant colour. There's non of the dour or browning of the hue which can be common with this variety.
Generous flavours of dark cherry, a little compote like. Raspberry is flicked out just at the death, something which just sticks with a length that is giving. There's too much to like here already and it's only been in the bottle a short period of time. Will cellar for ten years.
I'd go here again for sure. Well priced too.
