Antonio Galloni’s tasting notes had us drooling in anticipation of this Merlot-based blend’s “soft curves and voluptuous fruit.” It does not disappoint! Notes of dark cherry, boysenberry and cocoa meet hints of violet and baking spice in a mid-weight wine of immediate approachability. Sweet red cherry on the finish will have you smacking your lips for more.
The Merlot-based 2016 Barrel Select is round, sumptuous and juicy. Soft curves and voluptuous fruit give this mid-weight blend plenty of near and medium term approachability. Sweet red cherry, plum and pomegranate fruit are nicely pushed forward.
