Information

Bacchus, the Roman god of wine, dreamed one tempestuous night of a mighty river flowing red, fragrant wine. By the light of the new moon, he tossed in his toga as lightning flashed across the sky. Like the bright freshness of a perfect red wine rolling across his godlike palate, thunder rolled over those ancient Italian hills. Bacchus smiled that smile he reserved for his favorite among the Nyads, a saucy sprite named Barbera… her brash wit, stinging delivery, and her long, lasting humor amused Bacchus to no end. He called her a party in a bottle. We wrecklessly concur.

2015 Barbera

Shaker Ridge Vineyard El Dorado County, 10% Merlot.

Elizabeth and Andy’s grapes are showing incredible consistency year in and year out. Loaded with crisp cherry flavors, the shot of Merlot provides a background canvas of elegant tannins. Another wine to enjoy with a range of dishes from pasta to scaloppini but also enjoyed sipping in the cool Delta Breeze.
