2015 Barbera, Pauli Ranch Vineyards
Redwood Valley, Mendocino County
This wine opens with intriguing aromas of cocoa, vanilla, and pine. On the palate, fine tannins are followed with expressive flavors of nutmeg and rhubarb. The bright acidity and silky finish make this wine the perfect complement for rich fatty foods. It is a New World version of an admirable grape varietal, originally made famous in the Piedmont region of Italy.
