Wind Rose Cellars, 2009 Barbera

Vineyard: Red Heaven The wines grown on Red Mountain are known for being bold with dense concentrated fruit and this wine is all that and then some. Aged 22 months in french oak, this wine is ready to drink. The color is a deep hue of ox blood, with aromas of rose hips, coffee, mint leaf and cocoa. On the palate, the wine is filled with velvet fruit such as blackberry and cherry jam. The silky tannins support the wine with a finish of lingering pomegranate and plum medley. Enjoy with hearty dishes such as grilled meats, BBQ and tomato based pastas.
