Charter Oak Virtual Tasting Case
This Virtual Tasting Case includes 4 bottles each of the following Charter Oak wines:
2018 Zinfandel Mind TZM
Sourced from our Charter Oak Estate and Old Vine Zinfandel from the Papina Vineyard in St. Helena along with Old Vine Petite Sirah from the David Fulton Vineyard in St. Helena planted in the 1860’s. Dark, rich, juicy and bold, spicy and sexy with scents of cracked black pepper, showcasing strong hints of blackberry preserve, blueberry, raspberry, Bing cherry liquor and boysenberry pie notes. A huge wine of grace and elegance with a zesty lingering finish. This wine will do a dance on your tongue and encompasses a rainbow of wild exotic concentrated dark fruit flavors. One of the biggest TZM’s ever. I recommend an additional 6 to 12 months of bottle aging before releasing the Genie in the bottle. Featuring International Artist and winemaker’s wife Layla Fanucci’s artwork.
2017 Napa Valley Old Vine Petite Sirah
The 2017 Petite Sirah is a powerful, full-throttle Petite Sirah with firm but softening tannins on the back palate uncommon among Petite Sirah’s produced today. Dark blackberry with strong dark chocolate espresso mocha finish. Will age gracefully over the next 20 to 25 years. Will develop nicely in the bottle with additional bottle age.
2016 Guido Ragghianti Old World Field Blend
A majestic and royal blend of uncommon proportions reaching a new dimension, and hitting a flavor note an octave higher than any other previous vintage of the Guido. Deep, dark and decadent with seductive liquor flavors of blackberry, blueberry, black cherry and swirls of wild berry flavors but elegant on the palate. Extremely well balanced and integrated fruit flavors. The 2016 Guido is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot from the Dalla Gasperina and Frank Leeds Vineyards in Rutherford and Old Vine Petite Sirah from the historic David Fulton Vineyard in St. Helena along with a splash of Cabernet Franc. Pairs nicely with grilled and roasted meats and hearty Italian pasta dishes.
