CasaSmith Cervo Northridge Barbera, 2016
Charles Smith's current passion project is the Vino/CasaSmith project, focusing on producing Italian varietal wines in Washington State. Barbera, from the Piedmont region in Italy is known for retaining its nice acidity, even in warm climates (like the Wahluke Slope) and when fully ripe. Black tea, damp earth, forest floor in a round generous palate. 100% Barbera. Northridge Vineyard, Wahluke Slope, Columbia Valley AVA, Washington.
