BACKGROUND
This is Latah Creek’s second-ever Barbera. The first, a 2016 vintage, sold out in less than 8 months! Natalie is always in search of unique varietals, like Carmenere, Barbera, and more, to produce and release to people at affordable prices. Since this wine so was widely popular, they get grapes whenever the opportunity presents itself.

SOURCING
Northride Vineyard, Wahluke Slope

VARIETAL
100% Barbera

WINEMAKING
Mike and Natalie love to create wines that allow the varietal characteristics to shine, producing a fruit-forward and balanced wine. This wine went through a secondary fermentation, increasing its smooth mouthfeel, and 12 months in a combination of French and American oak to soften the edges.

TASTING NOTES
This beautiful, dark, inky red wine opens up with aromas of purple florals, blackberry, and toast. It then floods your mouth immediately with tart cherry, plum, and fine leather, while toasted vanilla and dark cherry linger.

FOOD PAIRING
This wine provides and ideal accompianment to beef, chicken, and pasta dishes, such as Ellena’s Tortellini Salad recipe available online at www.latahcreek.com/recipes or in her latest cookbook available for sale at the winery.
