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.
Beautiful nose, almost perfumed fruit. Very smooth blue fruit and a little spice explodes on the palate. Excellent and a pleasant surprise.
Blackberry and Licorice. Very nice wine. As good as (and some cases much better than) I have had when visiting Piedemonte, Italy.
This one is another really good deal.
Wonderful value and a favorite Barbara. Hope that this is available next year.
All Fruit and Licorice
Deep dark fruit and spicy licorice. All it needed was about an hour of air. HUGE value for the $$$
This was our first exposure to Barbera and we are very impressed. Couldn’t find any others at the wine store for less than twice the price. Very drinkable as an every-day wine.
Great with food
Lot 621 is a nice bold wine that goes great food, especially red sauces.
It's been a while since I have enjoyed a CA Barbera, but this version hits the spot. Utterly drinkable.
Pleasently surprised with this Barbera. Deep in color, fruity but also has earthy notes as well. Good price point. Will definitely buy more when available.
Dark blackberry, licorice notes. Amazingly tasty, pure pleasure -- had the summer hold on for October delivery. Otherwise, we might have been in time to order a case of this. Oh well, next time!
Love Italian Wine !
Bought two cases , decant for an hour and enjoy with just about anything .
