2019 Girasole Vineyards Charlie's Blend
92 / Wine & Spirits, 91 / East Meets West Wine Competition, 89 / Wine Enthusiast & Double Gold / San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition Gold / 2021 Mendocino County Fair Wine Competition
A delectable union of Merlot, Cabernet, Petite Sirah and Zinfandel grown on our family’s three certified organic vineyard sites. Compliments of the Petite Sirah and Merlot, this wine displays a rich, deep ruby color in the glass. It opens with alluring aromas of ripe boysenberry, light caramel and roasted pine nuts. On the palate flavors of raspberry, toasted marshmallow and hints of vanilla tempt the taste buds. The well integrated tannins on this medium bodied red wine deliver a silky smooth mouthfeel, and the finish is long and layered. For those of you that were fans of our previous Hybrid Red blend, this one is for you!
