Palmina 2011 Barbera, Santa Barbara County, CA
International Wine Cellar rating: 90..."Vivid ruby. Expressive dark berry aromas are complemented by notes of peppery spices and candied flowers. Sweet boysenberry and cherry compote flavors show very good energy and pick up a smoky nuance with air. Finishes smooth and long, with velvety tannins coming on late and adding gentle grip."
