Charbono is a California curiosity: with origins in southeastern France, it was planted in the 19th century in California but, except for a dedicated fan base that loved the Charbono wine that Inglenook made in decades long past, has dwindled to just about 80 acres in the Golden State. However, it's been declared a Slow Food "heritage grape," (like heritage turkeys, etc.), perhaps because of its famously food-friendly properties: earthy, dark fruit aromas but soft, easygoing structure. From the winery: "Soft, dense and approachable. This wine is dark purple in hue. The nose shows earth and fall spices, blueberry, fresh rose petal and leather. The palate is incredibly soft with balanced acidity and great structure. The wine finishes with a long soft finish of spice and huckleberry. While the look of this wine screams 'tannin!' the velvet texture rewards the adventurist taster."
