Wine Review: This midnight purple colored Charbono from Robert Foley is terrific. It opens with a mild black cherry and dark chocolate bouquet with a hint of pomegranate. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with integrated medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, round, and savory. The flavor profile is a graphite, gentle black cherry, and cocoa blend with notes of tea and black plum. I also detected some hints of cardamon and oak. The finish is dry, and its flavors and dusty tannins build-up and stick around for a very long time. This very tasty Charbono might be Bob’s best yet. I would pair it with a N.Y. strip steak. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Opaque and dark purple-red in appearance, Charbono is an amazingly light and lively wine. A ripe berry potpourri with a hint of red rose, the aromatics and flavors burst across the palate carried by delicious natural tangy acidity. The body is medium in weight due to the lower alcohol content, tannins super-fine and texture very soft. One of the few examples of varietal Charbono to kindle the culinary imagination.
