    July 8, 2012 - Our last, sadly. Still beautiful and still deserves the 94 we gave it three years ago. Very drinkable. Maybe at peak, and plenty of life left in this one. No flaws or sediment. No rim variation. Full of fruit aroma. No tannin. Medium alcohol and medium finish. Wonderful

    December 19, 2010 - This is only the second charbono I have had (the other being shypoke). Ripe blue and black fruits with fine, integrated tannins, lots of acidity and a little bit of toffee and tomato flavors in the finish. This was a fun, different wine.

    December 2, 2010 - Spicy and tart charbono fruit with some oak influence. Definitely has an Italian vibe with plenty of acidity.

    November 9, 2010 - Probably was better 2 years ago as this seems to have lost its zip. Its not done by any means but I think I just like my Zin younger. A bit of raison and prune on the nosedecent cherry mid palate followed with some tartness and tannin on the finish. Fine for the $10 I paid but not worth anywhere near full tariff any longer.

    April 25, 2009 - This wine is beyond reproach. Absolutely unparalleld. Will not bore you with tasting notes. If you have not tasted this wine, you have not lived.
