Wine of the Week - Carivintas NV "Barney"


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.

13.9% alcohol
