From Magnum: Still explosive on the nose with black cherry and blueberry Pie filling aromas framed with tobacco and baking spices and all dusted with vanilla sugar. Rich and rugged in the mouth with lots of soft tannins covered with deep, rich blueberry and cherry fruit. the tannins build on the backend and turn this a touch dry, but there's still plenty to like. The backend shows the plummier, almost pruny side of Charbono with lots of toasty spice coming out on the moderately long finish which ends with more blueberry fruit and a streak of vanilla. A bit of a brute, but I like it. 89pts and might improve over the next 4-8 years.

interesting experience with this limited charbono. my least favorite foley to date. (though not in love with charbonos) very dark gorgeous color. found the nose funky, almost unpleasant after decanting. cherry, apple, spice and tobacco notes. novice here, and not sure what the fuss is about.

The talented Bob Foley turns out one of the two finest Charbonos in California. (Turley Cellars produces the other). Deep ruby/purple with notes of earth, mocha., black cherry, and spice, Foley's 2004 Charbono is full-bodied, chewy, slightly rus... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Charbono wine from California in USA. 2004 Robert Foley Vineyards Charbono 750ml

Winemaker's Notes:

2004 Robert Foley Charbono - "Native of southern France or northern Italy, Charbono arrived in California in the 1800s and gained favor as a body-builder and overall intensifier when blended with the early Napa Cabernets. Most "Charbonophiles" associate this variety with Inglenook which is where I fell in love with it in the 1960s. My Charbono is grown by Gary Heitz, former Inglenook grower, who provides profoundly expressive fruit from which I craft deep rich cuvees. Small percentages of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and new French oak complete the assemblage of this inspiring red wine." - Robert FoleyThis is a California Wine.
