...The wine offers up superb precision and complexity in the nose, wafting from the glass in a melance of black cherries, cassis, woodsmoke, dark soil tones, a bit of cola and coffee bean. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and nicely chewy, with a fine core, ripe tannins and a long, complex and robust finish. This is a terrific throwback style of wine and while it is quite drinkable now with a bit of air, it will be even better with a couple of years of bottle age. Fine juice. 2014-2030+. John Gilman, A View from the Cellar

After an epic trip, what better way to celebrate being back in CA than some Charbono? Thanks @calderwine!

Napa Charbono - who knew it could be so food friendly and delicious? Other than Rory Williams, that is.

Bright, sour cherry flavors, good earthy intensity. Good work with old vines of a variety that's hard to find these days. 12.1% alc

2011 Calder Wine Company Charbono. Light body and plenty of fruit. Does well with my pasta and pesto.

Lighter then I would prefer. But still I liked it. I think this would do well with some spicy food.
