2006 Seghesio Barbera Alexander Valley

Love Seghesio Wines and saw their 2006 Alexander Valley Barbera and was intrigued to see what California’s twist on this highly quaffable varietal indigenous to Piedmonte, Italy had to offer.

With an enticing, plum red hue and a concentrated bouquet of perfume, red currant, cassis, clay and smoke, this wine lends wholesome flavors of blackberry pie, red cherry and cranberry with a satisfying finish. Not as Earthy and lacking the deep pomegranate flavors that Barbara d’ Asti and Barbara d’ Alba have a tendency to lend, but nonetheless, this wine is very enjoyable and worthy of a try if you can hunt it down.  Keep Drinking and Keep Believing.
