What We’re Drinking – Camp du Rouss Barbera d’Asti

Ripe black fruit, espresso, and hints of tarragon show on the nose. Raspberries and cranberries, coffee and eucalyptus, all come through on the palate. Tart flavors linger. This is a bit of a mish-mash, disjointed fruit and flavors fighting against each other instead of working together. Not Recommended. DBH
