Spring Mountain District Barbera 2016

By far, this is the best American wine I have had in my life. Apart from that, my wife and I had the privilege of enjoying it with our best friend and his family over a delightful dinner( thanks Stephen and Jenni). Despite the privilege of the company we had the opportunity of sipping a very exclusive bottle of barbera from Barnett vineyards (only 2 barrels produced ). Notes of cinnamon, dates and roses. Dried basil and spices on the palate. It was an enriching and pleasant experience. — 4 days ago

Delicious Barbera from Barnett Vineyards! Wine is meant to be shared with those closest to us and we did certainly that this past weekend!! Thick velvety notes of dried strawberries, fresh blackberry and blueberry jam, mocha/chocolate, and vanilla. Slightly higher alcohol than one might expect from Piedmont and more refined (not as spicy) given the age in oak barrels.

What a super fun and unique wine. I’ve enjoyed some of the chenins and Mourvèdre from D&R but this was my first merlot from them. Beautifully sweetened red fruit with new potpourri aromatics...insanely perfumed. Crunchy cranberry, high acidity and a mix of baking spice/herbs. Deliciously easy to drink. Thanks @Arden Barnett — 4 months ago

@Shay A : I agree with you, there wines are unusual and fun. Try the Mourvèdre from D&R.

@Bryan Kesting : I need to snag a few of their bottles and try them for sure. Never see them around town, so I guess I need to sign up on their list.

Excellent but not a match for earlier vintages. Maybe just needs some time. — 14 days ago

Wow. Pinot from Argentina! And it was fantastic. If I tasted this blind, I probably would have called Oregon or burgundy. Super funky upon opening with a bit of iron and stewed red and black fruit. After time in the glass, distinctly stemmy/herbaceous notes showed the use of whole cluster. Rose petal and black cherry finish. Very good structure. Such a cool wine provided by @Arden Barnett . — 2 months ago

Cool! I just picked up 3 bottles, along with some of the same producer's Chard. Will try both this weekend.

@Shay A the 17 Chard is pretty good. Better than I was expecting in terms of balance. Really nice as it warmed and opened up.

More color on this one: ranked 5 of 11 in our “97 Cali Cab blind tasting. This wine was definitely aging out but we caught it before the turn. Dark fruit showed through although it was soft and fading. Finish was balanced and pleasant.
