Preston 2021 Barbera
Barbera is one of our more vintage-dependent varietals and, fortunately, 2021 proved to be a great one. The wine shows focused aromatics of black and red cherry, with notes of red licorice and vanilla bean. Vibrant and juicy in the mouth with loads of berry, just-ripe plum, and hints of spiced orange. This stellar vintage has produced a wine with dense structure, although buoyed by plenty of its trademark acidity it begs for hearty fare and is always the star of the show when Lou cooks pizza at our pick-up parties.
