With a deep violet color, the wine displays clean; on the nose elegant aromas of spices, wild herbs and red fruits. On the palate, the wine is soft and elegant, a unique blend of sage, myrtle, rosemary, vanilla flavors and fine tannins. Notes of red fruits, pepper and liquorice add an interesting spiciness before a harmonious and persistent finish.

An elegant, medium- to full-bodied red, but with a gusty core of tannins and tightly knit flavors ripe black raspberry and blackberry fruit, delicate herbes de Provence, green olive and a touch of melted black licorice. It's fresh and focused, with a rich vein of tangy mineral echoing on the finish. Lovely now, but this should start to shine with short-term aging. Carignano, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2023 through 2033. 12,500 cases made, 800 cases imported.

Crushed wild berries, violets, incense and sweet spices lift up from the 2016 Barrua. It is silky in texture with a polished display of red and black fruits, well balanced by tactile mineral notes that form toward the close. Hints of fine tannin linger throughout the pretty, purple-tinged finale. The 2016 could use another year or two to flesh out a bit, but I expect that it will always be a more lifted and leaner expression of Barrua. This is a blend of 70% Carignan, 10% Syrah, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc.
