From some of the oldest vines on the Frediani property, we are excited to share this wine with you. A very intense aromatic profile lends to the complexity of this wine. Notes of violet, dark plum, licorice, crushed gravel/graphite, and white pepper are some of the prominent aromas when first opened. A dark inky appearance in the glass gives way to bold flavors such as dates, leather, and olallieberry, which seamlessly gives way to a vibrant pomegranate like acidity.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
With less than 80 acres left of this varietal in existence (all in California), Charbono is quite a rare grape. Brought to Calistoga from France in the 1880s, the 11.5 acres of Charbono vines planted at Frediani Vineyards are over 80 years old and are widely thought to produce some of the best Charbono fruit in the country.
