Aaron:  I liked the standard, oaky smell of this barbera which just enough nutmeg to add complexity.  The rich, cocoa and vanilla flavor presented a good nuttiness with some light berries which weren’t too prominent.  A little bitter if you don’t let it sit long enough but great with food.  91 points

Teri: I was surprised by this barbera. Normally a blending grape, I didn’t find this bottle as good as the pure barbera wines I have enjoyed in the past. Nutty/jammy flavors of cherry and plum but the flavors seem forced/mass produced. Medium body and heavy oak on the finish. Nothing too spectacular other than a semi-full flavor with nice tannins. 86 points
