Barbera 2017  Madhavan Vineyard - Ernest Vineyards
$28.00   750mL
To say this 4-acre vineyard has unique terroir would be an understatement; it sits in the volcanic caldera of the Moon Mountain AVA in Sonoma County.  Planted in 2008, the west-facing front block is peppered with boulders the size of watermelons and planted entirely with head-trained, dry-farmed Barbera.  In fact, we find the site so inspiring, the Edaphos label art is a sketch of one Barbera vine.


A dense and opaque purple hue reveals aromatics of dark berries with Scotch broom, sage, and bay.  The volcanic soil keeps the weight and tannin in lifted balance with the acid and rich fruit.
