Native Son 2015

Now a unique and notoriously tannic varietal, Charbono was widely grown in early California in the North Coast.  We were lucky to stumble on this 2 acre block of Charbono in Potter Valley, planted by Larry Venturi's father just after World War II.  Semi-carbonic maceration kept the tannins light, giving the wine a lift that plays well with its richness.  Bright and balanced, the wine explodes out of the glass with pure expression.
