2021 The Count's Selection Charbono

The Buena Vista Vinicultural Society, formed in 1863 by the winerys founder, Count Agoston Haraszthy, to further improve its winemaking prowess and expand its vineyards, has been restored as a collection of unique small-production wines that honor the winerys pioneering spirit and contribution to California winemaking. The Vinicultural Society explores clonal selections, varietals, and the incredible terroir of Northern California. The Count's Selection Charbono hails from the Shypoke Vineyards old vines, which are situated on the valley floor of Napa County in warm Calistoga. Also known as Bernardo, there are very few vineyards left planted to this unique varietal that was one of many brought back by the Count during his vine-collecting expedition to Europe.

The 2021 Charbono wine commences with inviting aromas of luscious plum, dark cherries, and a delicate hint of toasted almond. On the palate, this wine shines with its vivacious and succulent character, boasting notes of ripe blackberries, enchanting blueberries, and a touch of earthy mushroom. This medium-bodied red wine showcases a lively acidity harmoniously counterbalanced by seamlessly integrated tannins, leading to a drawn-out, flavor-rich finish.



The grapes for the 2021 Charbono were harvested in the very early morning of October 2, 2021. Within the Buena Vista cellars this wine was fermented in our open top fermenters with the native yeast. This wine was then aged in 100% French Oak with 18% new for 14 months.
