Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Plush aromas of blueberry, black raspberry, and pomegranate are complemented by hints of bittersweet chocolate and toasted sage in this enticing single vineyard wine. Beautifully balanced with bright acidity, the wine exhibits notes of boysenberry and vanilla bean on the palate leading to a silky finish.
Vineyard Notes
Twin Creeks Vineyard is located just 9 miles northeast of the town of Napa in Wooden Valley, a small valley only two miles across at its widest point and nestled in between the Vaca mountain range to the east and Napa Mountain to the west. Formed by volcanic activity, it boasts a variety of soil types, as well as a rolling topography.
Production Notes
Following the very small 2015 harvest, it was heartening to see the vines recover and bounce back to produce not only extremely high quality fruit but also some bounty in 2016! Harvest was earlier than expected, and we observed optimum flavor and phenolic development progress as we harvested. Across the board, acids are firm and pH is slightly lower, so the wines should be well-structured with very good aging potential. This is an exciting vintage with a lot to like! - Brooks Painter, Director of Winemaking
Winemaker Notes
Barbera is the third most planted red grape in Italy, where winemakers have relied on it since the 13th century to produce robust wines that age beautifully.
Food Pairing Notes
A classic Italian varietal wine to pair with rigatoni with fresh tomato sauce and ricotta, butternut squash ravioli with brown butter sage sauce, and chicken marsala.
