Luchsinger Vineyard Charbono 2019

Young, no new oak, carbonic charbono. Medium bodied, best aired and chilled. Exotic blueberries, dried black cherries, bitter chocolate. Tart candied. Bursting with flavor. Would be great and interesting aged. — 12 days ago

The Prisoner Napa Valley Zinfandel Blend 2018

Feels like it’s been a long while since I’ve circled back on The Prisoner. I used to drink the junk out of this juice years back and now that I try it again, it doesn’t seem like much has changed, at least in terms of overall flavor profile - I know the company has been through a lot of changes over the years but they’ve kept the juice consistent (courtesy of the humongous assemblage no doubt). It’s still the ripe, brambly fruit fest that I remember, all laced in espresso, dark chocolate, and spice cake. A fun (but overpriced) blend that certainly has its place. — 23 days ago

@Paul T- Huntington Beach I think it’s certainly turned into one of “those” wines over the years, but when the wine itself is analyzed - apart from all the fluff surrounding it - it’s pretty decent. Alas, you’re not missing anything as there are much better blends out there, and at better price points, too.

Headlock Charbono Blend 2017

Great blend! Comes off as a heavy Italian wine but is very easy on the pallet. Lots of fruit. — 3 months ago


Shypoke Vineyard Charbono 2014

Rich, dates, figs, prunes, heavy, chewy. A small glass is enough for me. Not unpleasant, actually the opposite, just a bit much. — a month ago
