2017 Jeremy Wine Co. Barbera
Lealand Noma approached us our very first vintage back in 2010 and offered us a 1/2 ton of Barbera. He said “If you sell it, pay me. If it doesn’t work, don’t worry about it.” From the first year working with that 1/2 ton we’ve grown the program to well over 10 tons.
One of four original 1978 trial plantings of Barbera in the Lodi appellation, this field has become one of our favorites to work with. It sits in deep sandy soil in the south section of Lodi that requires a deft hand to maintain good water balance yet yields consistently ripe balanced fruit year after year.
On the nose vivid lush cherry and black fruit mingle on the nose accented with soft aromatic hints of floral and sweet oak. Lush on the palate, with big soft tannins and dark ripe cherry finishing in lingering vanilla and cocoa.
