2021 Sorella Rogue Valley Barbera
This garnet-colored wine greets the senses with the alluring aromas of ripe brambles, especially a charming blend of blackberries and wild raspberries. The spice notes on the nose carry a delightful warmth reminiscent of cloves and a touch of cinnamon. Your palate is treated to the lush flavors of dark plums and juicy black cherries, entwined harmoniously with nuances of blueberries. A subtle hint of cola adds an intriguing layer of complexity to the fruit profile, and in the background, a well-integrated oak presence imparts a soft vanilla undertone, enhancing the overall richness of the wine. The finish offers a plush and velvety texture, expertly balanced by a lively acidity that galvanizes the dark fruit flavors and leaves the mouth with a gentle, lingering embrace of fine-grained tannins.
