I've had great experiences with the reds from oakmont, but I've never tried their barbera before. Wouldn't be surprised if it were also awesome. Anyone have some info on this specific variety?

So very tempted. Amador Barbera is where it's at! I just got the Wellington, though, and really really shouldn't spend more on wine. Even at $12/bottle delivered. I could maybe be convinced to split with somebody though.

Why the change in the 2008 vintage to include a 10% blend of zin?

I love Barbera and am excited to try this. Not had this winery's Barbera. But First Sucker is a plus. Can't beat $11 per bottle...

I'm not very good at discerning the different tastes/flavors from wine descriptions, but could someone tell me what "campfire" tastes like? It's in the write-up for the 2006 wine. ;)


As God is my witness, I thought turkeys could fly.

After 3X Wellington, I agree. Split?

C.G. di Arie Winery is from Amador County and I loved their wines offered on wine.woot so much that I joined their wine club. Only wine club outside of Washington State that I am a member of. This should be good. I hope...

AHHHHHH so tempting. I've been waiting for some Barbera, but I don't need six bottles. I actually have a bottle of the '07, but I haven't tried it out yet. I might have to just hold off and hope it comes up in the next woot-off.

I just opened the 2007 last week that I got during a wootoff and enjoyed it quite a bit. Served with just simple spaghetti in a roasted garlic marinara.

Nice deep garnet color. Big sticky legs. Some cranberry on the nose for me.
Again tasted cranberry plus some earthy spice, little tannin, good amount of acid, some fire from the alcohol(I think the bottle said 15% not the 14 on the site). Nice long finish too.

I would say this is definitely a great deal. Too bad I'm strapped for cash.

Just after I said "No more wine purchases, my cellar runneth over and I have to bottle my own fruit wines yet" and all, but I'm a sucker for Barbera. In for one.

If he doesn't, I can.

Barbera, first loved Scott Harvey's. Ripeness, red fruit and great acidity, in Amador, its perfect California growing region. 'No Zinfandel to dilute this woot. Even straight after an auto 3x buy from Wellington this is sorely tempting

Every bottle of Lang wine I've bought is wonderful. Especially for the price range. Just had the 07 Barbera a couple nights ago and it was everyone's favorite. The 07 Zin is even yummier in my opinion though!

If nothing else, this would be a great (low cost) intro for folks who have never done a vertical before.

Love the Zin as well. At this price the only question is one or two.

Even I bought this RH.

The winery sells the 2007 for roughly $16/bottle which reflects the case discount. Woot's $12/bottle price is a good discount on a well-reviewed wine. Plus there are notes of bacon in the bottles. Bacon.

Bacon and campfires. Is there an intelligent reason not to go in on this? I think not. I'm in.

Did they really have to put this up right after some Wellington, which of course was an autobuy? I was almost bought the mixed case of barbera/zin previous, just for the Barbera. Now you put up a cheap barbera vertical right after wellington, and also the day after I receive my case of Gard whites. I'm pretty sure there is probably a woot-off ready to start up next week as well. I'm going to have to ponder this one for awhile.

Same here. Was hoping to see some input from the maker, but the bouncing yellow oval, along with the comments here, convinced me.

Consecutive vintages of the same varietal, ie in this case, 2006, 2007 and 2008 of Barbera by the same maker.

Woot made my decision for me. The ball was bouncing and I was debating, then bam, it was sold out.

A "vertical" are consecutive vintages (years)from the same winery, also usually the same grape and appellation. I think it is fun to compare and notice the slight differences the weather chnges have on the taste. Looking forward to try........thanks Mike for splitting!!

Thank you to all who contributed to the sell-out. I was almost at the breaking point, at least now I can happily continue my day without being tortured by the desire to buy more wine.

You can always check in with me for splits or individual bottles too. I didn't get in on this or Wellington (or the one before) in time so I would be up for a bottle here or there.
