IH 2014 Barbera

<p><strong>Awards</strong>&nbsp;| Silver,&nbsp;2018 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition&nbsp;<img alt="" height="150" src="http://www.ironhubwines.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/SFCWC-2018-Badge-Silver-500x500px.png" style="width: 150px; height: 150px; float: right;" width="150" /></p> <p><strong>Tasting Notes</strong> | Subtle aromas of plum and cherries are readily apparent. There are also vanillin aromas. The initial taste of plum and dark fruit berry cobbler linger for a long-finish with a hint of sweet oak.</p> <p><strong>Suggested Food Pairings</strong> | This wine has mild tannins that are well-integrated and a round mouthfeel with nice acidity that will complement any tomato-based entr&eacute;e or pasta. Also excellent with braised beef.
