These Carivintas wines have been a great discovery for people who like big, bold, tasty wines. "Barney" is probably my favorite yet from this label.
A non-vintage blend of Barbera, Tempranillo and Malbec, this wine smells of roses, strawberry and maple syrup.
The syrup carries through to the taste, lending a rich and deep flavor profile throughout. I could also taste a little bit of strawberry. It was also a little leathery, with some black pepper underneath.
"Barney" has a very unimpressive color to it, but don't let that fool you. This is a great wine that I can't recommend highly enough.
