Red-skinned berry, blue flower, wild herb, menthol and clove aromas fill the glass. Smooth and delicious, the elegantly structured palate delivers layers of black cherry, ripe blackberry, mint and licorice framed in polished tannins. Fresh acidity gives it balance and energy.

This is very ripe on the nose with an intense vanilla character, kirsch and plum liqueur. Full body, medium-chewy tannins and a blackberry-coated, sappy finish, which still shows freshness.

Jammy blueberry, blackberry and earth flavors abound in this rich, dense red. Solidly built, with accents of flowers and wild herbs. Tightens up on the finish. Drink now through 2024.

Black cherry, chocolate, menthol, licorice and pine all run through the 2015 La Court. An opulent, flamboyant wine, La Court shows off the more extroverted side of Barbera to great effect. Silky tannins and plush fruit add to the wine's considerable appeal.
