WINEMAKER'S NOTES

The vintage of 2012 had more of a normal weather pattern. Unlike 2010 and 2011, the harvest proceeded without any significant rainfall. There had been fears of another short harvest due to cool weather in the critical months of April and May 2011 when bud development for the next year occurs. We need not have worried as a large crop was forthcoming. Many growers had 20 to 30% more fruit than their averages and much higher than in 2010 and 2011. Still there was plenty of heat to ripen this crop and a long enough season to get everything picked and through fermentation.

VINTAGE

Aromas of blueberries and plum jam cascade delicately over a balanced framework of well integrated sweet vanilla oak. Soft and silky, the 2012 Amador County Barbera has seamless tannins that help build the wine into a fine example of this varietal. Lingering flavors of black currants and slightly warmed blackberries co-mingle effortlessly with the wines natural acidity, making it a superb food wine.
