2016 Jacuzzi Family Vineyards Amador County Barbera
Barbera, in my opinion, lacks popularity in the US compared to many other red wines, and that is a shame. This Italian grape produces a memorable and flavorful wine that is incredibly inviting and easy to drink. The 2016 Jacuzzi Family Vineyards Barbera from Amador County is a fine example of this dark purple, crisp wine. Black cherry and steel on the nose, this lovely wine exhibits flavors of sour cherry, black cherry, floral bouquet and juicy young raspberries. This wine would be an excellent companion with braised spare ribs and stuffed mushroom caps. Very mouth watering wine!
