Tasting Notes

Gobs of black plum and blackberry from nose to finish. This one went straight to the lead right out of the gate! Bold in style and finishes like a Yankee Doodle warm plum pie. Hints of earthy tobacco and white pepper. Pairs really well with good friends and a fire on the beach... 2016

Vineyard Designation

Frenchmen's Creek

Winemaker Notes

Our Frenchmen’s Creek vineyard is so highly regarded because of its ability to consistently grow grapes that have intense flavors regardless of varietal. The terroir is extraordinary and it managed to turn what is most commonly thought of as a medium body slightly acidic varietal into something remarkably bold and intense! 2016 was a very special year for Helwig Barbera as a whole but especially so for this vineyard designate.
