Sobon 2019 Barbera
2019 Sobon Barbera Amador County
San Francisco Wine Panel Score: 90+ Points
NVWE Notes: Like the best Barberas, this wine delivers vivid fruit definition and plenty of zest. The nose leaps-forth as a piquant layering of red boysenberry, blueberry, cranberry sauce, red raspberry, red plum and violet with hints of savory-peppery spice. It is focused and forthcoming yet seems lighthearted on the palate, where flavors of cranberry sauce, pomegranate juice, blueberry, dried orange zest, and coriander seed deliver lip-smacking refreshment. The long, gulpable finish is delightfully summer-worthy and the wine is ready to enjoy.
