Upon opening this wine, the intense floral aroma sweeps out of the bottle and into your glass. Swirling the wine will send the lavender scent across the table; it’s that aromatic.
The color is a pure deep magenta, and is beautifully clear. The taste is very fruity; with a hint of cherry, bold blackberry and just enough tannin (a textural element that makes wine taste dry) to make it off dry. Pairing perfectly with red sauce pastas, red meats and sharp cheese, this bottle of wine gives you everything you expect from a California Shiraz.
The Barefoot Shiraz won a Gold Medal at the 2007 Grand Harvest Awards in Santa Rosa. Go ahead… Pull out the cork to find out why.
