The plump, rich cherry, raspberry and plum fruit is immediately appealing when first poured, feeling soft and rich. The robust fruit coupled with acidity and soft tannin makes this one of the best, most versatile food wines, which can carry everything from vegetable to meat dishes.
"Made from Lava Cap's estate grapes, with small amounts of Petite Sirah, Zinfandel and Cabernet Franc, this is a bright, earthy Barbera. Rustic and juicy with mouth filling plum and blackberry pie flavors, it's not shy, but entirely balanced, a treat for seekers of California Barbera."
Fruity & Smooth
A middle-of-the road, all around good table wine with detectable structure. Good selection for the price.
