95pts - Gold Medal, Best of Class - Los Angeles Wine Competition, 2014 -
Winemakers Notes - The Amador Barbera has a garnet purple color of medium depth. There is a carmine edge to the color’s hue. The aromas carry plenty of red fruit; raspberry and cherry are the most predominant. The bouquet has spicy pie crust notes of nutmeg and vanilla. There is also a buttery toasted pastry scent that adds another dimension to this wine’s scent. On the palate this wine is juicy and succulent loaded with ripe red cherry flavors.
The tannins are soft and this wine slides down smooth and easy. It may not hold up to a porterhouse steak slathered in a peppercorn sauce but it will honor Southern European cusine especially dishes that incorporate sausage, olives, capers, anchovies, feta cheese or other salty ingredients. 100% Barbera. 14.9% ABV.
