18 Dos Padres Barbera
98% Barbera, 1% Sangiovese, 1% Cabernet Sauvignon
When our winemaker Corey said he felt this was one of the best wines he had ever been part of making (in his career), I stepped back a bit…Best?? Then I sniffed and tasted. There is no doubt that this is a seriously captivating wine. Red raspberry, concord grapes, lilacs, red apples, mint, and green tea are just a few of the assault of juicy flavors this wine brings to the table.
With bright, fresh acidity, this wine should age well and should pair beautifully with a host of classic Italian foods ranging from truffles to pizza. This, indeed, is pretty amazing – and it came from Arizona!
