2016 Desert Wind Barbera

A traditional an Italian varietal, Barbera thrives in the warm arid conditions of Eastern Washington. A portion of this Barbera was fermented in a combination of open top bins and stainless steel. After fermentation, the wine was aged in Neutral oak barrels for approximately 8 months, and then in stainless steel to preserve the excellent fruit character, for an additional 18 months. The resulting wine has a deep color, with low tannin and moderately high acidity. Floral aromas of lavender are present with flavors and aromas of blackberry and plum.
