Deep Bing cherry red in color. Butter and red fruit in nose. Cherry flavor and black currants with great length in mouth, also a hint of phenol. Slight astringency on front of mouth in finish with citrus flavor. Big fruit forward wine, with no bitter seed tannins whatsoever

Boozy, astringent, disconnected. Something weird is going on with this wine.

Overly sweet red fruit on nose. Almost frosting. Palate is dry and doesn’t make sense with awkward fruity and medicinal notes. Short finish. #casasmith #barbera #washington #ctbucklinwine

A big, rich red with an equally dominating aroma. Has a smooth body with a rich and slightly dry finish. Incredibly even on the pallet with just an accent of fruit. Perfect for those big meaty dinners.

Bright cherry and cranberry nose. Chalky. Fresh, really quite old world in structure but new world in rich fruit. Acid driven. Great with vodka sauce pasta.
