2019 Scott Harvey Barbera, J&S Reserve, Amador County

Bright red cherry and mulberry, with tobacco and earth. This has an extractive, full center with soft drinkability and a super long, rich finish. A perennial 90+ pointer. Some claim Amador County Barbera may be the world’s best. You’ve got to try it.

Tasting Notes

Scott Harvey is synonymous with Amador County wine - San Francisco Chronicle

Bright red cherry , mulberry and tobacco with fleshy, earthy characteristics. This Barbera has an extractive full center with soft drinkability and a super long and rich finish. Delightful to pair with all things chocolate or a steak tartare.

100% from Amador County. Amador County is extremely well suited to Barbera. Barbera both buds out earlier and ripens later than Zinfandel producing grapes at lower pH with full bright varietal fruit. Amador County is rapidly becoming known as the best wine growing region in the world for Barbera.

Winemaking

The 2019 vintage was a vintage defined by a cool snap during flowering in the mountain vineyards that resulted in a drop of 50% in the fruit yield, but a much more extracted and complex character in the fruit due to the lower yields. Blended with 7% Syrah from high elevation Fiddletown AVA this Barbera was aged in French Oak for 19 months.

What Divvy-Up reviewers are saying:

"this wine is elegant, and easy. Great choice for a relaxing night in"

"a great introduction to Barbera and Amador county. We're excited to try more"

"love the red fruit and the big ripe mouthfeel"

"better than most Italian Barberas. Yup I said it"
