Andis Barbera 2017
Introduced to the Sierra Foothills AVA in the early 1900s by the Italians. Barbera has aromas of coffee-inspired blueberry, walnut and tomato leaf, white peppered black cherry and Old World acidity offer up a sensational mouthfeel. Dark chocolate and brushy notes add more depth to the finish.

This full-bodied wine offers rich, palate-coating fruit and dark-spice flavors that sit on a mouthfilling, velvety texture. Good depth and a sense of layering add to its considerable appeal.
