The Tallent Vineyard Barbera is always a nugget of pride at Becker Vineyards. An ancient, Italian varietal grown "for the people" has a beautiful presence here in the Texas Hill Country and we are excited to share this, with our people. The 2019 vintage represents a hotter than hot summer, producing ripe fruit, complete, yet soft tannins, while retaining its lively acidity.
Fragrant red fruits, tarragon, and subtle anise greet you, opening to boysenberry and brown sugar. Aging in predominantly American oak barrels lends notes of coffee, tea, complementing red cherry and rhubarb fruits.
Aromatics: Bright red fruits, mint, tarragon, cocoa
On the Palate: Red cherries, raspberries, subtle fennel, chocolate mint, bright acidity, medium-to-light bodied, soft, well-structured tannins
Decant 30 minutes
Serve in glassware for medium-bodied, aromatic wines, 58-65ºF
