2013 High Valley Barbera

The High Valley California Appellation has an elevation that ranges from 1,600 to 3,000 ft. Thanks to the cool breezes from the oldest lake in North America, it is one of the coolest appellations in Lake County. Our vineyards are certified sustainably farmed. We run sheep on these vineyards, composting the weeds into nutrients for the red, rocky volcanic soils. These are intensely flavored grapes, crafting wines that capture the character of this remarkable region.

Tasting Notes

Our High Valley Barbera has concentrated aromas of dried cherry and tobacco, marzipan and cedar. Its flavors are of dark chocolate covered acai berries, tart plums, fresh tobacco and a structured finish with notes of almond and olive leaf. Salute!
