2016 Charbono, Zentner Vineyards

2016 Charbono, Zentner Vineyards

In France it’s Douce Noir or Corbeau, in California it’s Charbono. By any name, this medium-bodied wine with scents of bright red berries and flavors of dark stone fruits, spice, and supple tannins is a crowd-pleaser.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Baked Morello cherries, rich black plum, and smoke, on a structure of firm but supple tannins. Balanced acidity and alcohol keep it bright and balanced.
Awards
Gold – 2020 Texas International
Food Pairing Notes
The perfume of mesquite-smoked brisket shares the spice, wood and leather in the wine. The weight and body of the wine is a match for beef, and the tang of vinegar in a good Texas barbecue sauce emphasizes the wine’s fruit character.
