Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Barbera opens with a fragrant black cherry bouquet with a hint of oak and anise. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, lively, crisp and juicy. The flavor profile is a black cherry and plum blend with integrated mild oak. The finish is dry and its acidity and flavors keep this wine fresh and alive in your mouth well after the wine is gone. This is a very old school Italian-styled wine. I would pair this wine with slow cooked lamb shanks with sweet potato polenta. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Camp du Rouss is deep red in color with garnet highlights. If offers textbook Barbera aromas of crushed cherry and wild berry jam, followed by notes of leather and herbs, and a hint of smoke. On the palate, Camp du Rouss is bright, with luscious, soft tannins. The supple layers of fruit are backed by Barbera's trademark acidity making it the ideal food wine.
