La Sirena Pirate TreasuRed 2013
Wine AdvocateOne of my favorite wines from Barrett, made from seven varieties, is the 2013 Proprietary Red Pirate TreasuRed. The wine, which comes in a squat bottle that looks like something from "Pirates of the Caribbean," is dominated by its meatiness, Mediterranean spice and ProvenÃÂ§al personality. Even though is has some Syrah and Grenache, it also has Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Petite Sirah. It is dense ruby/purple, full-bodied, juicy, succulent and an ideal bistro wine to drink with full-flavored food. It is a savory wine and fun.
