Vinea Marson Barbera 2019
Oooh I just want to keep smelling this! There’s cherry compote, freeze dried raspberries, red frogs, cola, inky dark blueberries, a hint of earthy forest floor, white mushrooms, and nutmeg spice. A complex melange of nostalgic childhood camping trips. Ultra silky, it dances across the palate with bright berry acidity. It’s not weighty but has extraordinary concentration – buckets of mixed cherries freshly picked in the cool of the morning, dried marjoram, crushed rocks, and the umami kick of top notch Japanese soy sauce.
