Just this past weekend I found a bottle of a 2003 Va La, Barbera. Va La is located on Gap Pike in Avondale, PA. I actually recall making this purchase since this was one of our favorites at the time.
This is one of those few times where I should have opened this bottle sooner. The browning/bronzing color was a true indicator it may be past its prime. Notes on the side of the bottle may help in this instance-“spicy, rustico-styled wine, with bright flavors of cherries, strawberries, and dark fruits.”
This just means I need to go back for another adventure! It is nice having a few local vineyards in our back yard.
