Ruquist Barbera 2008

R (Jeff Runquist), Amador County, Cooper Vineyard, Barbera 2008 True to form this wine smells sweetly of vanilla jammy berry fruits. In the mouth the oak comes on with force, adding complexity and richness while Barbera’s acidity is there to make the marriage with a slice of roast pork.

Winemaker Jeff Runquist and grower Dick Cooper. P&B in Ripon 14.5% purchased for $19.99 at Bottle Barn
