2016 CasaSmith ‘Cervo’ Barbera
James Suckling 92: This is tangy and salty with a dense and wild-fruit center palate that show so much intensity and freshness. An energetic, driven finish.
Jeb Dunnick 90: Deep ruby/purple-colored, the 2016 Barbera Cervo Northridge Vineyard is another knockout value. Blackberry, smoked meat, herbs, and earth nuances all give way to a full-bodied, concentrated, beautifully textured, silky effort that's already hard to resist.
