Incredibly integrated flavors and brilliant acidity. This AZ grown Charbono brings forth a nose of dried cherry-cranberry notes, rose petals and a whisp of smoke. The mid palate is flavorful and pleasing with sweet black cherries amid the picture perfect framework of tannin and acidity.
Winemaker Notes: There are less than 150 acres of Charbono on Earth and Dragoon Mountain Vineyard planted our Charbono vines in 2003. Deep roots equal rewarding complexity. This French classic handles its French oak protocol well. Done in half ton fermentations with multiple yeasts and punched down three times daily.
Pairings: Think slow food like beef stews and roasted pork. Charbono has a wonderful symmetry with nuts of all types.
