2015 ROBERT FOLEY CHARBONO NAPA VALLEY CASE 12-PACK
Bob Foley Winemaker Notes: “The 2015 Charbono is lighter in body and lower in alcohol than many red wines, but intoxicating in a unique complexity. Aromas display elements of grape jelly, Italian herbs and spices, and red rose petals. The mid-palate is quite delicate, and a lively acidity helps create a long, lingering finish…”
