Amador Cellars 2011 Barbera
Cherry and spice and everything nice. Smells alive in the glass. The spicy palate is fun and a bit wild. Finish is on the modeled side. Feels immature like it needs to sleep. Dark fruit finish.

Winemaker Notes: “This is the style of Barbera that has gotten Amador County so much attention in recent years. Rich and lush with juicy raspberry, black cherry, truffle and some beautiful herbal notes. Well balanced, with ample acidity and mild spices that linger on the finish. A wine that can be enjoyed equally with or without food and pairs wonderfully with nearly all American and Italian cuisine.”
