Blood orange, mixed berries, licorice, wood, peat and pine. A balance of fresh fruit tartness and savory dark fruits and a tiny amount of VA.

Fermented by variety 15-23 days. They were barreled down into neutral Burgundy barrels and aged on full lees for 9 months subsequently. During this time they were not racked nor fined. Wine was then bottled and aged in bottle an additional 10 months before releasing.

The Del Barba Family has been farming vineyards in and around Oakley since the early 1900s. Vineyards are farmed in pure Delhi sand with little intervention and even less water. The old Del Barba Ranch on Rose Avenue in Oakley, with its centennial center block of Carignane, Mataro (otherwise known as Mourvèdre), and Zinfandel, is surrounded by a block of ‘juvenile’ 30-year-old Zinfandel, which is where the Erggelet brothers pick their Carignane and Zinfandel. The fruit from the rosé comes from this vineyard as well.
