Chumeia Vineyards Barbera Partridge-Leigh Vineyards 2006

Chumeia Vineyards Barbera Partridge-Leigh Vineyards 2006 Wine Details
Price: $35.00 per bottle

Description: We are very pleased with the Barbera that we receive from the Partridge-Leigh Vineyard. Taming the acid on this varietal can be a challenge. For this reason, many winemakers use the Barbera grape as a blender. Due to the warmer summer in 2006, we were able to round off the acids without losing the kicky zing that many of our fans have come to love over the years. The wine offers a generous dose of blueberry and gooseberry. Both of which are rested on a foundation of soft tannins and well structured acids that make the 2006 one of the best Barbera’s that we have made. This lively Barbera will pair heartily with roasted or grilled game meats,lamb or beef, or a rustic roasted red pepper pasta with fresh mozzarella.
