2017 Landmark Collection Barbera
The nose of this Landmark Barbera has a lot of complexity and depth. The red fruit comes through first, specifically with notes of strawberry, cranberry, and tart cherry. There's also a significant amount of spice character, including allspice, hints of star anise, and black pepper. The flavor follows through on the nose, and additional flavors of black currant, caramel, and vanilla come out. It has a big mouthfeel, a creamy texture, a very balanced acidity, and a lingering finish.
