'Italian inspired, locally produced' 100% Barbera, Northridge Vineyard, Wahluke Slope
Tasting Notes: An earthbound wine with savory layers, mushroom, forest floor, rose petals, tar. A beautiful deep color and a mouthful of complex fruit with spice. Trademark Barbera freshness completes the picture.
Food Pairing: Mushroom risotto, braised chicken with peppers, pappardelle with lamb ragù
The Wine Advocate - "On another level, and worth the uptick in price, the 250-case 2014 Barbera Cervo (from vines planted in 1997 and tiny, tiny yields) was brought up all in barrique and is easily the finest example of this variety I’ve tasted from Washington. Elegant, layered and concentrated, with a serious feel in its black cherry, lavender, underbrush and peppery herbs bouquet, this terrific effort is a real head-turner that readers should seek out!"
