Good Buy Barbera
Our 2015 Barbera, a Wine Enthusiast Editor’s Choice, is a prime example of what an exceptional California Barbera can be. So just what does earning an Editor’s Choice award mean? The Wine Enthusiast awards its Editor’s Choice picks to wines that offer excellent quality at a price above the Best Buy range and/or is product at any price that merits special attention. Our 2015 Barbera completely and deservedly fulfills the parameters for it! At Naggiar, we aim to over-deliver on our wines…our $30 bottle of wine should taste like a $40 bottle of wine.
Our 2105 Barbera showcases the dark fruit and concentration that comes from the Sierra Foothills. It comes from 3 different blocks, 2 different rootstocks, two clones, and 2 different exposures, resulting in a wine that has loads of black cherry, fig, red licorice, and raspberry flavors, great acidity, moderate tannins, and an incredible deep ruby red color. It is because of this acidity, that our favorite food pairings are higher-fat comfort foods such as meat loaf, carne asada burritos, and thick stews. The 2015 Barbera will age for awhile due to its acidity and structure, making it a great buy for years to come!
