Robert Foley: Charbono
Robert Foley: Charbono
Our Price: $38.00
The original cuttings were imported to Calistoga in the Napa Valley from the Savoie region in the French Alps in about 1880. Its original name was Doux Noir, or “soft black,” later called Charbonneau (carbon water). Subsequently, Charbono was wiped out in Europe by the Phylloxera root louse infestation. Ripe aromas suggest dried cherries, cranberries, rose petals, and a sug­gestion of white pepper. A gentle mid-palate with flavors of black cherry candy is framed with soft tannin and bright acidity, which provides the long lingering finish.
