Lost River Winery 2014 Barbera, Horse Heaven Hills, $27
This red grape is the third-most-planted in Italy, yet it still is relatively rare in Washington state. Winemaker John Morgan brought in the grapes for this wine from The Benches Vineyard in the Horse Heaven Hills. The resulting wine is a delicious expression of Barbera, with dark color and is loaded with rich fruit and chocolate undertones. It’s loaded with fruit on the palate and would fair well with grilled steak topped by Gorgonzola. This was the third bottling of Barbera by this Methow Valley winery, and it earned a gold medal and best of class at the 2017 Wenatchee Wine Awards.
