May Wine Club 2024
Silver – 2024 El Dorado County Wine Competition

Virtually extinct, Charbono clings to existence on just under 100 acres in California. Don’t let the deep, dark, inky-black color of Charbono fool you into thinking this is a huge, heavy-duty wine. In reality, what we have is a very lovely, plush and plump deliciousness going on. Soft waves of blackberry, pomegranate, and spice give way to traces of sweet tobacco and smoky vanilla. Mouthwatering and beautifully balanced, with tannins on the lighter side, this 2020 Charbono was made to enjoy with food. Try with burnt ends or beef brisket, a charcuterie platter, or something with a bit of bacon like pasta carbonara or bacon burger. Delightfully delicious!
