Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Inviting aromas of red fruit, raspberry, blueberry, fresh thyme, wet stone, and oak spice immediately open from the glass. A soft entry leads to flavors of raspberry, sour cherry, and a hint of cherry cola. Flavors are carried through the lengthy finish with added flavors of toasted oak and black pepper.
Vineyard Notes
Fruit was harvested from our vineyards in Napa Valley’s most renowned appellations of Rutherford and Oakville. Known for their distinct terroir, these appellations impart their unique characteristics to the fruit, contributing to Charmstone’s overall complexity.
Production Notes
The 2016 harvest marks the fifth great vintage in a row. Although it was another drought year and yields tended to be a bit lower, the quality was very high. The year started out hot, then became cold, then turned hot again, and October began one of the heaviest rain seasons this region has seen in many years.
