I like it a lot. A little darker and more raisiny than most Barberas, but definitely interesting and fun to drink. Needs to open up in your glass for at least 15-20 minutes. First taste was actually pretty bad, but it changes quickly in the glass.
A quirky wine, with soft, pleasing aromas and flavors of red plum, sour cherry, and a touch of cranberry. Lots of red fruit here, for sure, finished in an medium-bodied, open knit, "international" style. Appealing on its own, but also versatile with food. A good value at around $15. Recommended. Those of you in Alexandria will find this at Unwined in Bradlee, as well as at the Butcher's Block in Old Town.
