Dark red color with a medium full and complex nose with a full complex body and well integrated tannins with a medium to long aftertaste. A bargain for the price.

Deep ruby in color with heady aromas and flavors of black cherries and raspberry with hints of red licorice and oak, this Barbera has a well-balanced acidity and a long lingering finish.

From Naggiar Vineyards in Grass Valley, California, a Sierra foothills town, comes this wonderful Cab.

Keeping in line with all of the terrific reds that are born of the vines from the Naggiar family, this Cab is full-bodied, very smooth finishing and pairs well with probably everything you've got to throw at it.

My new favorite "local" winery, try the Barbera, the 2016 Private Reserve La Bohéme and, especially, find the Black Beast, or, if lucky enough, the 2015 La Bête Noire Private Reserve.

Ripe with juicy red, blue and black fruits - almost stewed, but not quite - they've definitely seen some warmth. The alcohol pushes through a bit as well (a touch over 14%), but also a solid streak of earth, cedar and black pepper. My initial thought is of a Zin, but the palette quickly balances out. A hint of sweetness is quickly replaced by plum, black cherry, raspberry and subtle earth. At first I would have said the wine lacked complexity, but with a bit more time I'm finding some nuanced layers that pique my interest. Not your typical California field blend. Would like to see more from this producer.
