89 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2009
($18; aged mostly in Slavonian oak casks, plus a small percentage of old barriques Good deep red. Cherry and spices on the nose, accented by cedary, spicy oak. Broad, lush and sweet, with sour cherry and spice flavors given a sappy quality by lively acidity. Finishes with lingering notes of cherry, leather and spice and very good lift. The 2006 vintage brought even ripeness and good balancing acidity for barbera, noted cellarmaster Jeff Chilcott.
