Tasting Notes 

The 2017 vintage yield was lower in volume and yielded more flavorful grapes. Our 2017 Barbera has aromas of sweet cherry and spices. The flavors begin with rich cherry and berry in the mid-palate. Lovely notes of sweet, toasted oak and vanilla balance with the berry fruit on the finish.

Suggested Food Pairings 

Tomato-based entrées or pasta. Also excellent with braised beef. View recipes on ironhubwines.com.
