Tasted once at the Jerusalem Wine festival last July:
GMW, Barbera 2010: Dark garnet towards ruby, good concentration with notes of wet dirt and redcurrants, medium-bodied with on the palate strawberries and redcurrants along with notes of cigar tobacco and near sweet tannins in good balance with sufficient acidity leading to a moderately long finish.
Nothing like the Ramot Naftali but not bad either for the price.
I tasted to 2008 Galil Mountain Barbera and wrote about it on my blog. Here's the link: http://wp.me/p1Dfhj-8W They describe their version of this varietal as "softer" compared to other Barbera's. They called it the "Zionist Barbera."
Looking forward to opening it again for a re-tasting, after this year of aging in our wine cellar. Also looking forward to tasting the more recent vintage so eloquently described by Gabe.
Fruity, spicy, wide, slightly low on acidity, a lot of fruit and a generous touch of roasted oak. Soft, tasty and with character. A Barbera character with an Israeli style. Worth a try, chill it a bit before serving.
If anyone's interested I can link to my Hebrew TNs for this and other GM wines from that release.
