Light bodied and light in alcohol, this Charbono-driven blend offers a mix of stewed plums and rustic earth, becoming quaffable as it opens in the glass. On its edges, it has a sense of meatiness that calls out for barbecue. In addition to 41% Charbono, it contains 24% Petite Sirah, 18% Carignan, 7% Zinfandel, 7% Valdeguie and 3% Riesling.
