Racy Reds! (3 btls)
Barra Reserve Zinfandel
Deep ruby red in color with fresh aromas of black currant, cherry, and raisin with hints of mint and cigar box that expand on the nose. Fruit-forward elderberry and olallieberry come through on the palate, as hints of white pepper, cardamom, black olive and smoky clove intertwine to create an approachable yet intricate wine with a smooth and satisfying finish. 93 points + Publisher's Picks / The Tasting Panel
Barra Reserve Pinot Noir
A lovely color of dark red rose petals with flashes of red jewel tones. On the nose, initial aromas of strawberry, black cherry and sandalwood spice with just a subtle hint of toasty, new French oak. At first sip you're greeted with ripe red fruits, creamy acids and that classic Mendocino mineral component. On the mid-palate it is soft and velvety, with flavors of black cherry and red licorice. A touch of sweet vanilla from the French oak barrels rounds out the smooth finish.
Barra Reserve Petite Sirah
Floral hints of lavender paired with hearty blackberry, earth, and tobacco on the nose. Complex, elegant and full-bodied on the palate, this wine delivers flavors of black plum, anise, and pomegranate with subtle hints of toasted caramel, raw cocoa, red beet, and wet stone. This wine has full sensual impact upon release and will only develop more character with 2+ years of age. 96 points & Double Gold / Harvest Terroir Challenge & 94 points + Publisher's Picks / The Tasting Panel
