Light and beautiful. Very drinkable right after opening. Elegant and finely balanced. WS 92 points make sense to me. At $15 at Cosco right now I am considering a case. Really good value.

Baked-Cherokee purple tomato-stuffed plums with black cherry elixir, truffles, and smoky cedar plank, aromaticalky. Rich cherry interplay featuring English Morello and black in perfect ripeness! Fresh black currant and smoke. A tremendously expressive wine with an athletic physique full of chewy tannic tendons, lithe muscle and taut fruit skin.

Fresh, expressive black cherry, soft tannins, food-friendly acidity. Paired well with crab cakes and green beans. You'd have to be 'stunade' not to love this juicy, barely dry, easy drinking Barbera!

One to be savoured. Too bad I don't think I've ever seen it available locally.

Young and juicy but already nice and mellow. Just had the 2019 last week and that had more of the Barbera acidity? This one with touch of prune, tobacco, pretty Nebbiolo-like. From Big Nose Full Body. 03/26/22
