Community Tasting Notes 13

    December 10, 2012 - Strawberries, red cherries and just a hint of spice. On the palate, a medium-light mouthfeel, crisp, with strawberry flavors and a little oak. Definitely a new world style, but a very easy quaffer. Reminds me of a heavier Cali-style pinor noir. 88 pts. Aloha!

    August 10, 2012 - Seems to be getting better. Nice fruit and acid. Strawberry (?) on taste. Very easy drinking without food.

    April 26, 2012 - About the same as 8/26. Lively-for-CA, lush-for-Italian red-fruited easy-drinking-yet-food-friendly juice. Blind, I think I might guess Novy Grenache. Would happily drink more, though I'd also look into Palmina's offerings, were I seeking more CA Barbera (or any CA Italian varieties).

    March 16, 2012 - Fairly dark red, clear around the edge. Fresh strawberry, cedar, and spice nose. Medium bodied, dried cranberries, chocolate covered cherries, pepper, good acid, enough tannins to notice, tea, and a medium finish. Didn't blow me away like last time, but still very good.

    January 23, 2012 - Interesting wine. Doesn't scream "Barbera" at me, but it's a tasty, well balanced bottle. Strawberry and plum were the main notes for me, with a nice tartness to it. Needed a bit of air to get it going as well.
