2013 Le Pig – Lot 1

Hillcrest Vineyards is the oldest continuously operating vineyard in Oregon, and a personal favorite.

Le Pig is 100%Barbera  and 100% delicious. According to their website :

A dense and rich New World version of this dominant Italian red. We age this wine in a unique selection of new wood that gives the wines spiciness and an even longer finish. A customer favorite that is meant to go with all things pork.

The aroma is one of deep dark fruit and a bit of wood and bbq.  The initial taste is smooth and silky with a slightly tannic and spicy mid palate.  The finish lingers long and silky as well.  We will be getting more of this at the McMinnville Sip Classic.
