Palmina Barbera 2006

Thumbnail : Palmina Barbera 2006

The 2006 Palmina Barbera started out strong and has showy aromatics right out of the bottle. The color is a nice purple shade of brickish-orange. The palate is rich and full and very well balanced with puckering acidity. The wine is well built, has nice depth to it and upon closer inspection the nose reveals strong cola and coco notes with sweet red fruit characteristics. The palate is full and like the nose has sweet red and blue fruits that are supported by racy acidity. There are some dark fruits in there too; blueberry pie, or plum jam? It is a little on the sweet side to fit into the uber-classic category, but doesn’t miss the point by any means. There is a nice openness on the palate that begs for a food pairing
