2015 Charbono from Napa Valley
100% Frediani Vineyard Charbono
Earthy only in that it seems so well grounded and sure of itself. On the nose, its chalky texture doesn't come off dry, as notes of cassis and currant are fresh and robust. Its beautiful sanguine color is as satisfying as the approach, rich, textural and full of dark berry notes. Full bodied. A lingering finish. Only 149 cases made. Posse-only access on release.
