Winemaker Notes
One of our more elegant and delicate wines of the 2013 vintage. Prior to fermentation, we pulled 15% of the juice from the Barbera fermenter into our Rosé fermentation. The higher skin-to-juice ratio of the red fermentation resulted in a denser, more concentrated wine. The bright red fruit and silky palate of the Barbera is accented with darker, more tannic Syrah for depth and ageability. Pair with a nice, romantic dinner. Only 2 barrels produced. Drink now or cellar up to 3-5+ years.
