Barra of Mendocino Bella Dolce 2008 Petit Sirah Dessert Wine

This decadent dessert wine is made entirely from our own old vine Petite Sirah. We stop the fermentation while there is still residual sugar, resulting in a sweet, rich wine that recalls blackberries on the vine and Mom's cherry pie. Ageing in small oak barrels adds a silky mouthfeel and a spicy, rich finish.
