75 cases produced. 14% alcohol. From the Carli vineyard in Calistoga.

A powerfully fruity nose (reminds me of Turley) of black beryy syrup, smoke, vanilla, bramble, and sage. Very deep nearly opaque purple color. Lots of thick legs showing excellent coloration. Smooth plush and easily drinkable despite the obvious concentration of the wine. Low acid for the varietal. Moderate tannins, the wine finishes with slight bitterness reminscent to my palate of Amarone. Lots of power but I would like to see more complexity in the wine. 87+ points. Drink now through 2009.

"My bad" has been used in sports for a long time, I don't think it's use is restricted to the young. I used to use it all the time when I played softball (I'm pretty bad [Frown] ) 10 or 15 years ago. If you watch much football, you'll see the qb point to his chest after he makes a bad pass. The announcers will often say "he's saying my bad" on that pass.
Although I have not had anything by Robert Biale and only a few barberas ever, I have a question about barberas in general. Maybe I should post this in a different post. At any rate, the few barberas that I have had smell and taste very much like some pinots that I have had. Is this common with others? Of course, Jones description of the Biale would definitely argue otherwise.
