WWOW! - Washington Wine of the Week. Barili Cellars
(drum roll please).
The recently awarded (Seattle Wine Awards) Double Gold (Best of Best) honor goes to the 2010 Barili Cellars Double Barrel Red.
This boutique winery has had me flip flopping on which of their wines is my fave. When Barili first came on the Spokane wine scene, I adored their Viognier and then the next year the Cab Sauv was the clear front runner. NOW the award winning signature blend of Double Barrel Red is getting a double take. Yes, this one is currently my very favorite from Barili with good reason. In this remarkable red blend, Syrah brilliantly collides with Cab Sauv in the smoothest way. This a gentle giant - BIG on fruit (dark cherry, black currant, red raspberry) but with a soft almost plush finish and a slight trace of black coffee. At $20 a bottle you need to get it while you can. Cheers! XO Sip
