2018 Tribute Barrel Select Rogue Valley Barbera
From the Winemaking Team: This distinct Barbera opens with warm notes of spice including cardamom and cinnamon that gently transition to brambly fruit, wet earth, and a dried tobacco leaf sweetness. The palate maintains the earthy backbone and is joined by flavors of freshly macerated marionberries, black currant, and nutmeg. This wine has weight and texture, yet it remains nimble thanks to the great balance between acid, tannin, and oak its profile. A very fun, unique, and enjoyable representation of Barbera with great expectations of improving over the next decade.
