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 rustic, but tasty. Drink it over the next 2-3 years.

Bright ruby-red. Wild crushed blackberry, tar, licorice and a meaty whiff of reduction on the complex nose. Juicy, reduced and a bit tart-edged, with a slightly disjointed quality to the crushed berry and dried fruit flavors. A distinctly dry style, even a bit austere on the back, with firm tannic spice and elevated acids.

Bright, deep ruby-red. Lively aromas of crushed berries, spicecake, licorice and flowers. At once creamy and firm, with a crushed fruit urgency accentuated by pepper and herbs and framed by an edge of acidity. The oak element here seems a bit more intrusive than in the 2006 version, giving the finish a slight toughness.

The new releases include a tasty 2006 Charbono, which offers attractive earthy, blackberry, raspberry, chocolate, and damp forest characteristics. Tasty, round, and medium-bodied with no hard edges, this straightforward, exuberant red should be drunk over the next 3-4 years.

Winemaker's Notes:

The ’08 vintage ripened this variety to perfection and this wine can arm wrestle with the big boys. Grapey, firm and ripe – you can enjoy the ’08 with any kind of cuisine.
