Winemaker Marilee Shaffer Notes
This Barbera is loaded with cherry and cassis aromas with a sprinkling of clove. In the mouth it’s full of darker cherry and cola flavors with nutmeg on the finish. Flavors are deepening as the wine bottle ages; with firm acidity and moderate tannin, it just keeps improving with time. 2015 was notable for its early spring, warm temperatures, little rain, and challenging fruit set conditions. The Cooper Vineyards’ trellis strategy—head-training their Barbera vines —moderated the impact of summer heat, preserving bright fruit flavors.
