Wine Details

Dark and opaque in the glass with just a hint of magenta popping on the rim. Perfectly ripe, earthy plum notes ride a beam of bramble-berry jam and chocolate, with hints of strawberry peeking over the big, dark fruit notes. Fleshy and plump on the palate, with a perfectly balanced transition to a juicy, chocolatey/blackberry finish that is as lively as it is robust. This wine delivers tons of pleasure with good complexity and tantalizing acidity that will keep your food happy and you coming back for more.

Cam Confidential

My favorite Barberas all have a bit of altitude on them, thriving both in the red soils of the Sierra Foothills and the 1500-2000 foot gravelly benches and rocky ridges of Lake County.

Lot 621 comes to us from a terrific program in Lake County from one of California’s pioneering winemakers. Crafted by a gentleman with about half a century of winemaking experience across Napa, Sonoma, and the surrounding wine counties, this is a delicious Californian take on a classic Italian varietal, made under the watchful eye of a master by any definition of the word. Simply an incredible level of quality at this price.

What a surprise this wine was! We have had other Barberas that did not taste this good or were priced so well. I think we are going to get more before it's sold out.

I’ve not had this type of wine before, but i was pleasantly surprised at its subtlety bold flavor. Nice body and really fragrant. An excellent value! I’m looking to buy more...as soon as i make room for it!

Really enjoying this- reaching for it most nights, which means I’m almost out. I use a little aerator which makes a nice difference.

This is a great Barbera for the price. Juicy with a lot of depth to it. Great pasta and couch wine.

This wine would have gotten 4½, but, that is not an option. Very good with a chicken and pasta dish, with chocolate, and on its own. I would recommend this to anyone and will have again. A really nice fruity wine.

If you like a fruit-forward wine, lot 621 offers great value with excellent complexity for the price. I will be ordering several more bottles after enjoying the first one.
