Our Barrica is the perfect starting point for a journey of discovery into the special magic that occurs when wine made from the Tempranillo grape combines with the aromas of oak. Barrica in Spanish means a 225-liter barrel.

All the grapes for this wine were harvested from medium-age vines in our single vineyard estate immediately adjacent to the winery. It spent four months aging in 225-liter barrels of mainly American oak.
Smokey vanilla aromas of medium-toasted oak gently surround summer strawberry and ripe red cherry fruit. The mouthfeel is fruit-filled with a silky texture.
This wine provides a perfect backdrop for turmeric-flavored rice dishes, substantial pasta recipes, grilled or barbecued hamburgers and medium-aged cheeses.
