2013 Scott Harvey J&S Reserve Barbera, Amador County
This wine is 100% Barbera from Amador (93% Toy Vineyard, 7% Manby Vineyard). Amador is extremely well suited to Barbera. Barbera both buds out earlier and ripens later than Zinfandel, producing grapes at lower pH with full bright varietal fruit. Amador County is rapidly becoming known as the best wine growing region in the world for Barbera.
A world class Barbera with aromas and flavors of bright red cherries, pepper and mulberry with a bright center finishing with chocolate and spice. Fruit forward with rich, full flavors, expressing both the varietal and the Amador terroir.
