August Briggs Napa Valley Charbono 2015
Pull the cork and stand back… A blueberry pie comes to mind with warm and inviting aromas of sour cherry, holiday spice and cedar. On the palate it is medium-bodied and well balanced with nice acidity for accompanying food. The flavors echo the blueberry and cherry fruit with a supple mid palate that finishes with a lingering, rustic quality. We were able to extract all the complexity these special Charbono vines offer without the aggressive tannins the varietal can often produce. It makes for one savory and seductive wine for your drinking pleasure tonight but it will also age well for another 4-6 years.
