2015 Barbera

With aromas and flavors of dark cherry, spice and berry, this wines natural lively acidity makes it a terrific partner to a wide away of cuisine. A light- to medium-bodied wine, Barbera is supple and bright. We find it is typically best enjoyed young--within a year or two of release.

Recommended drinking period: Through 2018.

Food pairing suggestions:
Crisp-Tender Roast Duck with Cherry-Rosemary Sauce
Barbera Lynch's Tagliatelle Bolognese

2016 Dry Rosé (in Cask Club allocations only)

A later-than-usual harvest allowed terrific flavor development in our Sangiovese while the cooler vintage prevented the grapes from becoming overly ripe. This rosé is bursting with flavors of wild strawberry, bright cherry and a touch of spice. It's a terrific wine for sipping year-round, but is especially lovely in the warmer months. Only 160 cases produced.

Recommended drinking period: Through 2017.

Food pairing suggestions:
Hazelnut-Crusted Chicken with Raspberry Sauce
Melon & Prosciutto Salad with Parmigiano-Reggiano
