Napa Valley Zinfandel


2008 Napa Valley Zinfandel & Charbono


$36 plus Free Shipping only on Indie Winemakers

Additional 15% discount for volume purchase of 1 case

Indie Winemakers Sale -$36 plus free shipping fees. This week, Indie Winemakers is offering hand-crafted, ultra premium artisan wines produced by Tofanelli Family Vineyards. Both the Zinfandel and Charbono are from the same old vine (planted in 1929) vineyard managed by the Tofanelli’s for 3 generations. Pick one or try both! Indie Winemakers has obtained a very small allocation for this featured wine. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

Tasting Notes – 2006 Napa Valley Charbono

Our tasting notes include sight, aromatics and palate. For more information, see our Tasting Techniques

  • Sight: This wine is dark ruby in color. Huge teardrops with no color variation.
  • Aromatics: Dark fruit aromas with blackberries, slightly mineral and a slight tobacco, and leather aroma.
  • Palate: Very smooth soft mouthfeel, big body and mostly balanced. A bit of tannins were noted in the finish suggesting another year will round out the wine. Will gain complexity and harmony in a few months.
