California History in a glass. That’s what Cloudview’s Red Wine Del Barba Vineyard Contra Costa County represents. Planted on their own roots in pure sand over 100 years ago, these Zinfandel and Petite Sirah vines are still cranking out intensely concentrated, complex fruit today. But vineyards in this part of California are an endangered species.
A seamless cuvée of Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, and Cabernet Sauvignon that, blended, produces a bold, fruit-forward, and delicious, with a dense, dark ruby core. Its aromas are led by sun-kissed blackberry, lilac, and roses, with a brushstroke of eucalyptus and cassis. The mouthfeel is equally joyful, with a mountain of flavor and richness balanced with a hint of acidity and well-rounded tannins that resolve in a long finish.
