At a Glance


taste + style

“Aromas of dark fruit, notably cassis and currants, foreshadow what is a very deep and brooding wine. On the palate, blue fruits are complemented by rich blackberries and hints of savory spices, like clove and allspice.”



Vineyard + Production

This wine is sourced from one of Mendocino’s hidden treasures–the Graziano Family vineyard. The vineyard was first planted in the 1940s by the Graziano family on the recommendation of pioneering Mendocino County winemaker, John Parducci; and Charbono did so well here, the family expanded the block in the 1960s.



Food + Wine Pairing

“The dense, brooding black fruit aromas and flavors, along with soft tannins, pair well with wild game, sharp cheeses and roasted meats.”
–Chad Hendrickson, Executive Chef
