2014 Passaggio New Generation Barbera Rose Lodi
Passion is defined as an intense emotion, a compelling enthusiasm or desire for something. Imagine leaving a 15 year career and fully immersing yourself in a new career which can be both challenging and rewarding at the same time. Ladies and gentlemen meet Cindy Cosco winemaker/owner of Passaggio Wines
Following her family heritage in 2004, Cindy has set out to create wines which showcase each years harvest. The end result is award winning wines which should be shared with friends over conversation and dinner. Just recently she was named one of the Rising Stars for 2015 by the National Organization Women For Wine Sense. She will also be celebrating her 1st Anniversary of Passaggio Wines Tasting Room located on the historic Sonoma Square where wine lovers can enjoy a relaxed atmosphere of tasting and being with friends.
Tonight's wine the 2014 Barbera Rose is an interesting wine. Aromas of strawberry and watermelon with a hint of anise. Simple and intriguing at the same time. It's my first Barbera Rose.
The mouth is really good with an initial ripe strawberry and a crisp melon tropical feel. When you allow the wine to open on day 2, there is this tart strawberry rhubarb sensation with hints of creamy vanilla. Beautiful and well priced at $26 per bottle.
Swing by for a visit on your next tasting adventure at 25 East Napa St Suite C in Sonoma. Sip, relax and enjoy Passaggio Wines.
