2009 Barbera

In 1973, Gary Eberle began working in his family's pioneering winery, Estrella River (which is now Meridian). He co-founded the Paso Robles appellation in 1980 before opening his own eponymous winery in 1983. Eberle focuses on Rhône varietals with a little bit of Italy in the mix, such as this Barbera. It is medium-bodied with soft tannins and a balanced acidity. Ripe red fruit flavors with vanilla and a touch of spice make this Barbera a food-friendly wine.
