Kivelstadt Cellars “Native Son” Charbono 2017

$35.00

Kivelstadt Cellars “Native Son” Charbono is an incredible and different summer red wine. This can be served slightly chilled, 56 degrees.

Bright and balanced, the wine explodes out of the glass with savory aromas of briny black olives and mushrooms, and juicy, deep black fruit on the palate.

The bright color, which is due to the wines partial carbonic maceration, leads you into the high-toned fruit flavors. Next comes an intense hit of earthy spice and forest floor. The wine finishes with acid and integrated tannins. A fantastic food pairing wine that will only get better with a few years of age.

Kivelstadt Cellars “Native Son” Charbono is an incredible and different summer red wine. This can be served slightly chilled, 56 degrees.

A unique varietal, Charbono was widely planted all over California in the beginning of the 20th century. While it has been ripped out or grafted over in favor of more mainstream varietals, there is a small amount remaining in the North Coast. They were lucky enough to get their hands on a two-acre block at Venturi Vineyard! “We make this rare and unique variety in a light and fun way in order to combine its brooding strength with a light and fun style.”
