Omaggio means “gift” or “offering” in Italian and this wine is just that an offering to the gods. Omaggio is 100% Barbera. The wine was barrel aged for 30 months in French Oak barrels of which 50% were new barrels. This is our second botttling of Barbera from Red Heaven Vineyard located on Red Moutain. Our previous vintage was from 2009.
TASTING NOTES: This wine is a tribute or offering to mother Nature. On the nose the wine has a bouquet of
mocha, coffee, and coconut husk with aromas of stewed cherries. This medium body red wine has a medley of fruit
flavors such as Bing cherry, fig and prunes. Hints of caramel and black tea are mixed with sweet tannins. The wine has
a lingering finish of chocolate espresso beans and dark cocoa.
