Robert Foley 2012 "Napa Valley" Charbono, CA

Ken's Wine Rating: Very Good+ (91)
Price: $35
KWG Score: 91
No. Professional Ratings: 1
# of Cases: 600
This opaque and very dark ruby colored Charbono is another winner from the Robery Foley portfolio. It opens with a fragrant and attractive black raspberry and red currant bouquet. I also picked up some hints of dried cranberry and oak as well. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and smooth. The flavor profile is an oak infused black plum with notes of minerality and hints of red currant and black pepper. The finish is dry and it flavors and moderate tannins linger and last for quite a while. Our mini-group of tasters suggesting this tasty Charbono with a New York strip steak. Enjoy – Ken
