In a state where Cabernet is king, the nearly extinct Charbono is taking center stage at Gianni Buonomo Vintners in the San Diego coastal community of Ocean Beach. The 2014 Charbono recently received a Double Gold medal in the 2018 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition. A major celebration has been scheduled.
The new release 2015 Charbono is a delight. Deep ruby in color, it delivers a bold, rustic and dusty essence of ripe black cherry with a delicate sweetness of lightly toasted oak. An enduring, silky-soft finish pleases everyone who loves a great glass of well-made red with their Tri-Tip.
