2018 Jeff Runquist 'R' Barbera, Amador County, USA

$24.99 USD

Has a deep dark magenta color with the beginnings of a carmine hue. The darker color this year correctly foreshadows a more substantial vintage. Aromas of red fruits, strawberry, cherry and red raspberry have matured into black raspberry, dark cherry, and marionberry. The fruit scents are framed by a bouquet of wood smoke, caramel, mocha, and toast. The flavors of this wine exhibit a seldom seen juxtaposition in wine; richness with bright acidity. The flavors coat the palate with luscious ripe fruit; currants, plums, and blackberry while maintaining the freshness that is Barbera. Typical of Barbera, the tannins are mild and contribute a richness to the wine’s texture without adding bitterness or astringency or pushing the fruit from center stage.
